Re: Webelos Badge -- what does it mean?

I have a question a bit related to all the discussion about Webelos being
a preparation for Boy Scouts.
One of our den leaders, whose den is now 5th grade Webelos, who is also
our new Cubmaster this year, formed his boys into a patrol. His idea was
to set them up this way from the beginning of their Scout careers as Cubs
then into Boy Scouting. Can Cubs be formed into named patrols?
He is wonderfully enthusiastic about Scouting--in fact, I call him "Mr.
Enthusiasm, much to his wife's amusement--and I don't want to put a damper
on his positive energies. However, since his boys will graduate from Cub
Scouting into Boy Scouting next May, I'd like to be sure that what he is
doing is okay. I'd hate this to be a problem with the Troop.
Thanks for your comments.
