It is
label-org-name
Label documents the device and device class to which a file is assigned. If specified, it must end with a hyphen.
Hence you can say that UT-S-<Name>

-S- is given for QSAM dataset.
UT- is nothing but device name and device class where file is assigned.

Some more information:

For a "UNIT TRACK" QSAM file associated with a ddname of SYS001, the ASSIGN clause can be coded in any one of the three forms shown below:

ASSIGN TO SYS001
ASSIGN TO S-SYS001
ASSIGN TO UT-S-SYS001

Hope now it is clear?
