How is naming a ray similar to naming a line?

It is the same. The only difference is that between a ray and a line. A ray starts at one point and goes in ONE direction forever. Imagine if you had a laser gun that would cut through anything. The point where a ray starts is just like the body of the laser gun-- it is where the laser beam starts and the laser only goes away from it in one direction, while the ray itself is like the laser beam--it starts at the gun and will cut through anything in its path. A line does not start or stop at any specific point and goes on in both directions forever. Alternatively, you could think of it as being a laser gun that has some sort of problem where it fires the laser out of the front and the back at the same time.
