Possible means of identification? (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

names

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'identification?' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'possible means' is the wordplay.
'means' can be anagrammed to 'NAMES'.
However, I'm not sure how this is indicated.

'of' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for names that I've seen before include "Some people drop these to sound important" , "Paul, Pat, John" , "identification" , "Titles" , "People and things are known by them" .)
