This clause is mandatory if you are using function name overloading, but otherwise is optional.

The clause specifies the specific name of the function. The specific function name is the name placed in the DBC.TVM table and has the same name space as tables, views, macros, triggers, join indexes, hash indexes, and stored procedures. A specific function name must be unique within its containing database.
