Hi, Please help me.

In opportunity object have a look up field which name is Account Name, but when I use trriger to automatically create opportunity, I can't find any parameter can represent Account Name this field or any API can represent Account Name look up field??  Thanks

The field API name for the account in the Opportunity Object is "AccountId" .
Try "AccountId" to fill the account lookup in the trigger.

Hope this solves your problem.

There should be one field with the name AccountId.
This is the field which is referenceTo  account.

Let me know if you have any issue.

If you want to access the name of the account you can use the below code. "Account.Name" 
For your understanding I have pasted a query which may help you 
SELECT AccountId,Account.Name FROM Opportunity limit 1
