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

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

Double click LMB to rename.
