I'd add that you change the name by clicking on the options button
on the report and that you have to do that FIRST before clicking
on the "save report" button.  "Save Report" doesn't have any
dialog associated with it, it just saves your report options
(like the selected accounts and time period) to put in the "custom"
menu for use later.

If you want to view those reports side-by-side, you can save
them as custom reports and then use the "Sample and Custom ->
Custom Multicolumn Report" to view them next to each other.
