So, if you're getting a bless error, that sometimes means the EFI volume that's on the drive is too small.

The name of the drive isn't "on the volume". It's in the partition, and we don't touch the partition, Dan. If we did, every time you backed up, your backup drive would get renamed.

Probably not the best place to get ARQ opinions, but Stephen is a good guy and does excellent work - I've heard good things about it, but I don't use it myself (I use Backblaze for online backups).
