Stephanie,

Google photos does not embed those names in the metadata. If and when those photos are downloaded from GP, the names will not be in the file.

The only way to embed those names in the metadata is to use desktop software such ad Tag That Photo. Phototheca, or lightroom Classic.
I believe no professional photo organizer should add info WITHIN GP. If a client really wants to – you may not not be able to stop them  but the client should know the potential consequences.
