Usually they don't name black holes, it's just the sources that are associated with them.

What has the same mass as a black hole?

A lot of things, actually. The term 'black hole' is applied to an object whose gravitation pull is sufficiently great to prevent light from escaping. Because the magnitude of the gravitational force that one body exerts upon another is, partly, a function of the distance separating the two bodies, black holes can exist at a variety of sizes. There is, for example, a class of black holes known as 'Micro black holes.' These are objects with a radius smaller than 0.1mm (or 100 micrometers, hence the name), with a mass up to that of the Moon. Another class of black holes, called 'Stellar black holes', can have a mass up to that of the Sun, and a radius of up to 30km.
