What is a 'reserved name' and how do I get rid of it?

When I try to name a worksheet tab 'History,' I get a message telling me that
History is a 'reserved name'. It won't allow me to use the word, but there is
no explanation as to what 'reserved name' means or how I can fix the problem.
Anyone else out there encounter this? Thanks a bunch....

I believe certain words are reserved by Windows for OS-based functionality.
Apparently, "history" is one of them. Try something like Historical or
HistoricalData or, Hystory, etc.

Try [history.]
Use a period after the word.
