Are we required to name compounds such as Phenylethanone or 2-Methylnaphthalene-1,4-dione? These were on page 62 of Intro to O Chem and I can't seem to understand how they are named.

I believe so. The different endings are only because of the functional groups for each molecule, and the numbers in the middle of the parent chain represent the location of single/double bonds.
