We are looking at creating TAGS to groups our synthetic monitor so that we can manage access and alerting for specific synthetic monitors.
Are there any ways that would allow us to create an automatic tag rule to group some synthetic monitor with specific names ?

To manage access to Synthetic Monitors, you can create a Management Zone with Rules that apply to Synthetic monitors (i.e. browser,external, HTTP monitors) that contain a specific name in the Settings -> Preferences -> Management Zones. For tagging automatically, Synthetic Monitors is not an option in the Rules currently. You still can tag manually using the Bulk tagging feature by filtering on Synthetic monitors and searching on a text that all your synthetic monitors' names contain and tagging them with your custom tag. Please feel free to create an RFE for automatically tagging of Synthetic Monitors here.

This can be done via Automatic Tags.
I would recommend you have staff stick to a naming convention. for example: Environment - Application - Service. You could then leverage regex to dynamically tag these hosts. We have submitted a RFE for the regex portion.
