Jane Carnall has <<... found many references to "stringified" and
"stringify", for example "stringified full entity names"...
From context, it appears to mean an entity name that has become a string
(stringified), or the process of turning an entity name into a string (to
stringify).>>

I've never heard the term before, and though it's likely to be easy for a
programmer to figure out, it strikes me as unnecessary jargon. I'd prefer
"convert to a string", which is only about 10 characters longer... not that
great a savings.
