Question: Does it matter what you name your css files?
Answer: No, it doesn’t really matter what you name your css files for. CSS files don’t really help or hurt your SEO.
The one trick that is helpful is to use CSS to manipulate the look and feel of the H1 family. You can put in attributes to change the color and hard margin return. Google heavily favors the H1 family, but you can use your CSS to manipulate its look so it is more pleasing to the eye.
Beyond that, your CSS file is really a file about the look of your website, not its SEO content.
