You can use the command "isosurface list" to get the names created by default. They are usually of the form "isosurface1", etc. However, I recommend giving any surface you want to control a name when you create it. The first word after the command "isosurface" will be used as the name.
P.S. Note that a GUI surface tool, which will allow you to manipulate surfaces is in the works for the next release. Probably will only have slicing (slabbing) surfaces in 12.2, but we'll see how far I get. Until we know how heavy weight it is, I can't tell you whether we'll put it in the applet.
