This is the same with any force field; the atom names have to match the force 
field's expectations.

If you're just trying to build a DMPC bilayer, construct one using CHARMM-GUI. 
It's guaranteed to have CHARMM-compliant nomenclature (and you should be using 
CHARMM36 for lipids, anyway, because the CHARMM27 parameters are not nearly as 
good for lipids).
