I pretty much learned to play guitar by picking up and just diving in headfirst. Now that I've progressed I've having trouble with identifying some chord inversions. Can some one tell me what each of these chords is please? Also can you explain how you go about naming them?

(These are main chords from Under the Bridge and songs like that)
e---- ---- ---- ---- ----
B---9 ---7 ---5 ---- ----
G---9 ---8 ---6 ---- ----
D---9 ---9 ---7 ---9 --11
A---- ---9 ---7 ---9 --11
E---- ---- ---- ---- ----
--------*---*
Mainly, the types of chords like the ones with the * underneath them. Where it's 1-2-3 accending fingers. (sorry I'm awful at theory)

1. E major (second inversion)
2. B major (second inversion)
3. A major (second inversion)

Last two shapes aren't chords. Chords are groupings of three or more notes, remember?

I mean, I just know the chord shapes from playing them so much. Look at the...2nd and 3rd chords, i think, not looking at them right now. Both shaped like a E major chord just in a different spot on the neck.

You'll learn them, but yeah, I know the notes too.
