How do you change column names in JQL?

I have JQL written below, that gives me some applicable records

project = XYZ AND status = Done AND resolution in (Unresolved, Done, "Won't Do") ORDER BY cf[10310] DESC, cf[12100] ASC, cf[12601] DESC, priority DESC, updated DESC


How do i incorporate a column name change in the above JQL such that my column name appears as defined, such as :

AND ("Issue Name" ="Issue_Name")

The column names returned in the issue navigator are the names of the fields you've chosen to view it in it.

JQL is not SQL, all it is intended for is returning a list of issues that match a search.  

It is up to the functions that are using it to format it for people.  The issue navigator (and hence exports) have no functions for arbitrary renames, so you will only ever get the plain field names.

I'm not sure I understand your inquiry here. JQL query will return a list of issues matching your query. The columns shown are defined by the columns you have chosen to display. The titles of the columns will be defined by the field names, you cannot change these.

can you clarify what is going on?

I don't think you can do this with JQL. The JQL just only returns the column name you chose to display
