I started to use MCL and my question may not be
about MCL itself.
In order to make the name of lisp file name more meaningful
and easy to remember, I use many letters for file name.
But only 31 letters are allowed for filename.
Is there anyway to extend the number of letters for filename
over 31 ?

This is a restriction of the Macintosh OS, not of MCL.
I don't know of any way to change it.
However, if you use A/UX with a BSD file system the limit is 255.
Normally 31 character file names are enough and certainly
better than the 14 character limit of System VR2 A/UX file systems.
