Ichigo had a big zanpakto but it wasn't awakened yet. After he got floored by Kenpachi, Ichigo gained his shikai--first, his reiastu passively increased from somewhat above VC-level to Captain-class. Second, he gained the getsuga tenshou attack. (One funny thing IMO, is that it appears that Ikkaku's bankai is at best no better than Ichigo's shikai--passively increase reaitsu to captain class. Though it's debatable if Ikkaku is even captain-class strength with his bankai).

Some characters get abilities (kido spells, elemental abilities), some get attribute bonuses (reaitsu, speed, etc).

If Kenpachi doesn't know the name of his sword, then he hasn't gotten either yet (ability or attribute bonus).
