"Name12,345" vs "Name12345" How would you properly write this kind of notation? (If there is any proper way to write it) I naturally want to include the comma to separate the groups of digits, but I'm not sure if it's the right syntax when used in a name like this. Perhaps it's better to use "Name-12,345" or something similar?

- This question does not appear to be about English language and usage within the scope defined in the help center.
Look at some common examples in English:
King Louis XI
Pope John Paul II
The year 2000
Super Bowl XX
What you definitely don't see is a comma. Also, you see a space between the numeral and the word(s) around it. With big numbers, I would stay with arabic numerals (2000), but with smaller numbers, I would use roman numerals (XXII).
Thus, Name 12345
However, if we're talking parts to a complex machinery, or some such, where letters and numbers are part of the entity, I would go with
Flu virus H7N7 and the like
