there are no restrictions no signs or road markings just a neighbour who thinks it should be a private road named after her

Yes, some people have unreasonable expectations. They are usually the ones who want the police to wait upon them.
Is she able to get out of her drive with you parked there?

In that case there is no claim against you.
This is a public road with no restrictions and you are not causing an obstruction. There is no offence.
Unless she is going to lie through her teeth and make wild allegations there is no action she can take.
Please don't worry.
