Code Sample, a copy-pastable example if possible

In [2]: pd.Index([1,2,3], name='a').unique().name
Out[2]: 'a'

In [3]: pd.MultiIndex.from_arrays([[1,2], [1,2]], names=['a', 'b']).unique().names
Out[3]: FrozenList([None, None])

Problem description

unique preserve name for flat indexes, it should preserve names for MultiIndexes..

This causes #20308

Expected Output

In [3]: pd.MultiIndex.from_arrays([[1,2], [1,2]], names=['a', 'b']).unique().names
Out[3]: FrozenList(['a', 'b'])

Output of pd.show_versions()
