Not sure if this would be an acceptable solution or not, but what happens if you wrap your "Select Name" in brackets or parentheses, or start it with a space? I haven't tried it so don't know if those would sort to the very bottom or to the top.
You should set the "prompt" property of the ComboBox to "Select Name", and then set selectedIndex of the ComboBox to -1 anytime the prompt should be displayed, such as creationComplete="myCombo.selectedIndex=-1".
If this post answers your question or helps, please mark it as such.

PeakDigital, that is a clever work-around, thanks!
I will use Greg's solution as that is the proper way of doing what I want.
I hadn't discovered the prompt property yet, I'll be using that solution in the future too.
