The FITS standard allows each HDU to have its own extension name (value to the `EXTNAME' keyword). Currently, in most cases they are just set to the name of the program that was run.

A common option can be specified to read the extension name (similar to the `--hdu' or other common options) and use the value the user has specified to allow more customization of the output.
