I am doing a bubble sort in MATLAB and when I run my code, the array is popping up in the workspace and it is named ans
I need that to be named something else. How would one change that ans to a different variable?

var_name = ans;
Or in your code, you could've assign a name to it. That way you don't have to manually do it each time.

That's what MATLAB calls a result of an expression when you aren't accepting the result into your own variable. For example
4*pi % Not being set equal to anything, it's just by itself.
To get rid of it, simply accept the answer into a variable of your own naming:
myVar = 4 * pi
