If you look under the "CDDB" menu in CDex, you will see there are
several ways of getting the the song titles: the freedb online database
(if this a commercially released CD); CD-Text; or a CD player ini.file. 

If the song title is available, the Track Names will be appear in CD-EX,
so the names of the ripped files will have that name. Although you can
then export multiple from Audacity with those file names as Mauro says,
the CD tracks you burn from those exported files will still only appear
as "Track01.cda" and so on in Windows Explorer, and the CD or
software player window will still only say "Track 01". But when you
burn the CD, you can manually add the title/artist information as

If the CD burning software and the CD drive support CD-Text, the
name of the song and the artist etc. should then appear in the player

If playing the CD on your computer, CD-ex can rip to FLAC, MP3, OGG
and other smaller-sized formats than WAV. This will increase the
amount of playing time on your CD, though of those three formats
mentioned, only FLAC is of perfect, lossless quality. If you rip to those
non-WAV formats, CDex will insert available Title/Artist/Genre and
similar information in the metadata tags in those files.
