What is the difference between chapter name and chapter title? When I write


I assume 'Introduction' is the chapter title. Then, what's the chapter name in this case? I guess they are not the same thing, since there are commands \ChNameVar and \ChTitleVar in fncychap package.

  • Is the word 'Chapter' itself the chapter name? – Sukan May 20 '18 at 5:34

    Most chapter styles write something like (in English): Chapter 1 - Introduction, here chaptername is "Chapter" literally hold in \chaptername – daleif May 20 '18 at 5:35
  • I guess the package documentation wasn't helpful to you. – Johannes_B May 20 '18 at 6:01
  • The macro \chaptername is very useful when changing languages. – John Kormylo May 20 '18 at 16:03
