Thanks Daniel....so basically it's done from the text domain/slug

If my theme is called: My Theme
Then my text domain/slug is: my_theme  (or) my-theme (or) mytheme

The text domain/slug is then used throughout for translation function calls
and function prefix naming...etc.

It checks via the theme slug. And that comes from the theme name.
