I've read different names of surah nr. 40 in two qurans. The one was surah ghafir (the forgiver) and the other one was surah mu'min (the believer). So my further questions are: Who gave the names of all the surah? I mean the quran in the book form was made after the prophet (peace be upon him) died. Did he gave the instruction to the order and name of all the surah? And why does some surah have multiple names?

Allah has many names like Allah, Ar-Rahman, Ar-Raheem, Al-Malik, Al-Qudoos ...

Muhammad (SAW) has many names like Muhammad, Ahmed, Al-Muzzammil, Al-Muddathir, Rasul Allah ...

Quran has many names like Quran, Furqan, Al-Kitab, Al-Hakim ...

Similarly many Surahs have multiple names.

The order of the Surahs are from wahi, as Jibreel used to go through the Quran with Muhammad (SAW). The same is the nature of the names of the Surahs. Refer to https://islamqa.info/en/131664
