[xsl] Selecting only one element using templates

I'm new to XSL/T and I've been reading the list archives, the tutorials
available in and around the net, etc., but I can't seem to find an answer to
a simple question (which is usually the case with simple "abstract"
questions) so I hope nobody minds if I ask here.

I've got an XML structure as so:


Now, I've been able to get at what I want using the examples provided by
this list, so I'm not having difficulty with the more intermediate steps,
however, I'm having difficulty getting my head this:

What if I just want to select the <name> node? If I use
<xsl:apply-templates/> and select "name" I get all name elements, plus the
item element which I don't want. I just want a list of names from the name

Do I have to specify a template for each element in an XML document? That
seems rather tedious, especially if I have a lot of elements within <name>
elements used as containers.

Any help is appreciated,
