XkbSymbolsNameMask (1<<2) Xkb->names symbols
XkbPhysSymbolsNameMask (1<<3) Xkb->names phys_symbols
XkbTypesNameMask (1<<4) Xkb->names type
XkbCompatNameMask (1<<5) Xkb->names compat
XkbKeyTypeNamesMask (1<<6) Xkb->map type[*].name
XkbKTLevelNamesMask (1<<7) Xkb->map type[*].lvl_names[*]
XkbIndicatorNamesMask (1<<8) Xkb->names indicators[*]
XkbKeyNamesMask (1<<9) Xkb->names keys[*], num_keys
XkbKeyAliasesMask (1<<10) Xkb->names key_aliases[*], num_key_aliases
XkbVirtualModNamesMask (1<<11) Xkb->names vmods[*]
XkbGroupNamesMask (1<<12) Xkb->names groups[*]

If the names field of the keyboard description xkb is NULL, XkbGetNames allocates and initializes the names component of the keyboard description before obtaining the values specified by which. If the names field of xkb is not NULL, XkbGetNames obtains the values specified by which and copies them into the keyboard description Xkb.
If the map component of the xkb parameter is NULL, XkbGetNames does not retrieve type or shift level names, even if XkbKeyTypeNamesMask or XkbKTLevelNamesMask are set in which.
XkbGetNames can return Success, or BadAlloc, BadLength, BadMatch, and BadImplementation errors.
To free symbolic names, use XkbFreeNames.

BadAlloc
Unable to allocate storage
BadImplementation
Invalid reply from server
BadLength
The length of a request is shorter or longer than that required to minimally contain the arguments
BadMatch
A compatible version of Xkb was not available in the server or an argument has correct type and range, but is otherwise invalid
