What is the constitutional basis for the expressed powers?

It states that "the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people." Essentially, it gives states the authority to make their own rules regarding issues like marriage and education.

Was the United States of America named so because it was the first independent sovereign country in the Americas?

The United States of America was named because the difference between the colonies that became the US and the others was that these were located in the Americas. And these colonies had the idea that they would be independent states that were united in common defence and other matters. Other countries in the Americas have similar names for the same reason. The official name for Mexico is Estados Unidos Mexicanos which translates literally into United Mexican States. The name America was the planned name for the country that would have been formed by the newly independent colonies of Spain in North and South America (Gran Republica Americana) according to Francisco de Miranda who was involved in the Battle of Pensacola, where Spain helped the US beat the British. So, the name America is in the official name of the US solely because it is one of the countries in America.
