Dear friends,
My geometry is a simple spherical with a hollow in that, is there any way to select the inner surfaces with name selection tools? in fact the inner surfaces are not visible and for selecting them in the name selection is hard.

Use the selection tools in the bottom left corner of the screen to select bodies other than the one in front. Have a look at the Workbench tutorials for examples of how to use them.

you can simply make a named selection and then toggle off visibility of this named selection. Then selection of inner faces will be easy.
