I am new to blender and learning from a few tutorials. But the tutorials are of the older versions. I am having difficulty selecting and naming different objects. If I want to select a particular object, how will I do it?

In Blender, by default, selection is done by right clicking on an object. (It seems weird but there are some good workflow reasons for this.) You can change this under File > User Preferances (or Ctrl+Alt+U) > Input tab.

You can change the name of an object at the top of the Object properties tab.

I thought it would be worth pointing out also, that by pressing N to open the properties panel, you can scroll down to rename the object with it selcted. GIF to help explain how to name objects

You could use the Outliner:

Click LMB (Left Mouse Button) the name to select the item. Shift + LMB to add selection,

Double click LMB to rename.
