Hi Vlasta, I'm glad that this has helped you. Yes, the names will be printed or written down on your Swiss Saver Passes, which would make splitting up in several ways a bit harder. So if you choose this option, you should try to consider in what ways you'll split up most often and order your Swiss Saver Passes based on this assumption. But again, you could also opt for individual passes.
If you don't know exactly when your stay in Lauterbrunnen will take place, it's hard to say which pass, or pass combination, is best for you. If your stay in Lauterbrunnen is clearly separated from long train journeys throughout the country, the combination of a Jungfraubahnen Pass/Swiss Half Fare Card for the first week and a Swiss Saver Pass for the second week would make sense. But if you're not sure in advance, and if you want to be able to decide on the spot where you want to go, you may also want to make use of a Swiss Half Fare Card of Swiss Saver Pass during the entire stay. This at least gives you the freedom of adapting your plans each day. If weather is bad around Lauterbrunnen, for example, but better elsewhere in the country, you could decide to make one of your longer train trips from Lauterbrunnen. Also, the price difference between an 8-day and 15-day Swiss Saver Pass is relatively small.
Good luck with your calculations and feel free to get back with other questions!
