    Solved Meaning of network interface name

    For the network interface name, I always see em0 / lo0, do they have any special meaning? I have a FreeBSD 12.2 image, it is em0 when it runs on VirtualBox, but when I move it to MS Hyper-v, it becomes de0, why is it changed and what does de0 mean? Can I fix it to em0 always? Many thanks.
