Did you look at the documentation? The sheet name is the 3rd input argument to xlswrite().
It's best to name them as you write them but if you forgot to and now need to rename lots of sheets, one way is to read them all in again and then write them out with the correct name. Another way is to use ActiveX but it's more complicated.

Yes, two ways.
  1. Perhaps you can go into your Excel settings and tell it to start with 0 sheets open. If not,...
  2. You can use the DeleteEmptySheets() function in the attached class if you're using Windows.
