    making noise mean

    You know Ive had a name rattling around in my head?
    Is that what makes the noise?
    Ill ignore that."

    I couldn't understand the last two sentences. Is it an idiom?

    No. The second speaker is jokingly suggesting that a noise is coming from the first speaker's head. The first speaker understands the humour, but says that s/he is not going to be drawn into defending his/her original choice of words.
