Naming ethers

How do you name the following ethers?

1)CH3OCH2CH=CH
2)CH3OCH2CH2OCH3

I know the prefix of naming ether (-C-O-C-) is Alkoxy-, and have no suffix for this functionol group , how do you name ether molecules in general ?
 
The first I'd call methyl allyl ether. Although the IUPAC name would be something like 3-methoxyprop-1-ene.

The second with IUPAC would be 1,2-dimethoxyethane, although I think most would just refer to it as MEM.

Got it, thanks.

Is there any nameing system other than the IUPAC ?
