I've noticed there're several unnamed streets in my area so I've created an OpenStreetMap account and tried to enter the missing data. However, I can't figure out how to set the name of streets. The Help dialogue does not appear to mention the subject.

Any clue?

You need add a tag "name".

Best way is look at Beginners' guide on wiki and especially chapter on Potlatch.

Thank you. In the end, it's all about tags, but it's not obvious at all when you're a beginner :)
