Hi Eddie,
thanks for the answer. I didn´t really find it in the complexType
explanations but
had a look in the normative schema for schemas, and I guess there it is:

--snip-----------------------------------------------------------------
<xs:complexType name="localComplexType">
  <xs:complexContent>
   <xs:restriction base="xs:complexType">
    <xs:sequence>
     <xs:element ref="xs:annotation" minOccurs="0"/>
     <xs:group ref="xs:complexTypeModel"/>
    </xs:sequence>
    <xs:attribute name="name" use="prohibited"/>
    <xs:attribute name="abstract" use="prohibited"/>
    <xs:attribute name="final" use="prohibited"/>
    <xs:attribute name="block" use="prohibited"/>
   </xs:restriction>
  </xs:complexContent>
 </xs:complexType>
--/snip----------------------------------------------------------------

Best regards
  Holger

I think the relevant section is [1] which says:

"Complex types definitions are identified by their {name} and {target
namespace}. Except for
anonymous complex type definitions (those with no {name}), since type
definitions..."

> Could someone please give me a hint?

You're correct. Anonymous types cannot carry name attribtues.

Yes.
