Your issue is with the server name.
Where you got the name that you used from? It should be get from the Azure portal and you should use the full qualified name (servername.database.windows.net).

it looks like you need to review -adjust you r sql server setup .

The error shows "Name pipes" -need TCP\IP
if your sql server is set yo use the default port 1433
try from SSMS use  where  you type sql name to use TCP protocol:

TCP:YourSqlServer,1433                          /https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms345343.aspx#otherComp/


Also, just in case check if sql server  Browser service on your server is running

check Provision a SQL Server virtual machine in the Azure Portal

Thank you very much. SQL Server was not configured at all. these steps helped me to configure it. There are still network issues which our network administrator is looking at.
