This clause is mandatory for overloaded method_names, but is otherwise optional and can only be specified once per method definition.

Unlike method_name, specific_method_name must be unique within SYSUDTLIB.
Specific name for the method.
For information about naming database objects, see Teradata Vantage™ - SQL Fundamentals, B035-1141.
This name is stored in DBC.TVM as the name of the method database object.
If the UDF library for your database contains any objects with multibyte characters in their name, you cannot use a single-byte session character set to create a new UDF, UDT, or method, even if the new object name contains only single-byte characters. Otherwise, Vantage returns an error to the requestor. Instead, use a multibyte session character set.
