sc_module_name is required as an argument of the constructor to any class derived from sc_module (if there are multiple constructor arguments, sc_module_name is usually the first). It is passed a string argument which is used to create a temporary sc_module_name object that is then passed to the sc_module constructor, and used to create a hiearachical name for every component in a SystemC model (sc_module_name is itself a class and its constructor takes a string).

 

If that still seems a bit confusing, I suggest you read through section 5.3 of the SystemC Language Reference Manual (available from http://standards.ieee.org/getieee/1666/download/1666-2011.pdf)
