Sprints for report generation in Kanban.

I just took over admin status for my team at work. Currently, we are using Kanban board to organize our workflow. I understand that sprints are only available when using Scrum. 

However, it appears that several sprints are in existence. When creating a new ticket, the last dropdown menu prompts me to add a sprint from a pre-existing list. In reports -> Workload Pie Chart, there is a dropdown menu to select the statistic type. Here I can also select 'sprint' and show those same pre-existing sprint names to sort my team's time. 

Perhaps these sprint names are auto-generated? I have searched, but I cannot figure out where this list of sprint names exists, or how I can add a new one. I am wondering if anyone knows how I can create a new sprint name so that my team can select it when creating new tickets, solely for the purpose of allowing me to generate reports for time spent on a bi-weekly basis.

Any advice is very much appreciated, thank you!

Yes sprint names are auto-generated. anytime you (or other user w/ manage sprint permissions) creates a sprint in their scrum backlog then the system will create a new sequentially numbered sprint. Here is some documentation on Sprints but unsure if there are any details therein on the naming or not.

Thanks for the timely response, Jack. Here's a follow up.

Our team previously used Scrum for the development phase of the project, and has only switched to Kanban for managed services. If I continue to create sprints in Scrum, even though it's not being actively used, will I be able to use those time frames as a measuring metric in my Kanban reports under the Workload Pie Chart reports? 

Alternatively, are there any other methods to track time in weekly/monthly blocks, instead of by the entire project?

Thanks again for your assistance.
