    You need to add more to the examples in order for us to determine what's what, Belly.

    Now I see what your question was, Belly. You use <'s> when you're describing something a person owns.

    The name of that girl's dog is Rex.

    As MT noted, "That girl's name ..."

    That girl's boyfriend is over there.

    That girl's bag is brown.

    That boy's motorcycle is a Honda.
