Why no Name With Caller ID Number?

The phones I've had and those of some friends all just show a number
for caller ID but not a name. On my home phone these same callers will
show with name and number. Is it certain phones, or certain services,
or the whole cell/mobile system that drops the name? And why? Caller
ID loses most of its value when the name is dropped.
