Code Sample, a copy-pastable example if possible

import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
df = pd.DataFrame(np.zeros((2, 2), dtype=int)) = ''
0 0 0
1 0 0
import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
df = pd.DataFrame(np.zeros((2, 2), dtype=int))
df.index = pd.MultiIndex.from_product([['a'], ['b', 'c']], names=[
                '', ''])
a b 0 0
c 0 0

Problem description

to_html(header=False) is not displaying the (row) Index names. The header parameter should be analogous to the index parameter and hide the columns Index only and leave the (row) Index names displayed.

to hide the display of the row Index names, the index_names=False parameter should be used.

the problem is due to an early return in the composition of the HTML header. the to_html parameter header should not be confused with the HTML header.

def _write_header(self, indent):
truncate_h = self.fmt.truncate_h
row_levels = self.frame.index.nlevels
if not self.fmt.header:
# write nothing
return indent

Expected Output
0 0 0
1 0 0
a b 0 0
c 0 0

This isn't just restricted to HTML. It's a bug across the board, even with to_csv.
