The Page Name is both the name for the URL and is the name used in the menu.
The parent page is the parent in the menus.
Insert page determines where the page should go in the navigation structure.

select "Settings". Change the "". When done, click the "Update" button.
When done editing the page, click on "Edit Page" again then click on "Close
