I don't name them unless they are marked or are otherwise socially referred to by a name. Often this is the two names of the street on either side with "Aly" at the end. So, the alley between Sherman and George streets would be "Sherman-George Aly."
However, I also know that using "Alley" can be helpful because if it is left unnamed, then you don't get a turn instruction with a "name" if the destination is on the alley. The app will leave the name of the last named segment on-screen.
If Waze uses an alley mid-route, then having it not named also is very confusing because if you are on 1st St and the alley takes you to 2nd St, then the turn onto the (unnamed) alley will tell you to "turn left/right at 2nd St" which then followed by "turn left/right at 2nd St" onto the real
Not sure what the best guidance is, but it may be contextual, that is, situation-dependent. See what searches for "alley" in the wiki lead to.
