I can't find where the frame name is defined.

I launched hokuyo_node and rviz.
Floor Scan(Laser scan) data was visualized when Fixed Frame is set to "/laser".
Where the frame name "/laser" is defined ?
I checked through source codes in hokuyo_node package,
however I couldn't find where it is.

Thanks in advance.

It is a private parameter named ~frame_id.

You will need to broadcast that frame yourself, either in code or using static_transform_publisher or creating a urdf and use robot_state_publisher. See here for some basic tf setup.
