Can we rename multiple layers in one go?
For example, we select 10 different layers, we right click and select "rename layer(s)" and then a prompt comes up where we type the name we want to assign to all the selected layers.
While Adobe hesitates implementing this, use this amazing free script form Sergey Osokin to rename layers, artboards, objects, anything — at once, with a lot of features:
So cool. Why don’t we have it from the box already?
doesn't matter how its done, but we need something to rename multiple layers. Even hitting tab will not go to the next layer to copy paste the name just like in Photoshop.

It should be as simple as OSX finder rename selected items.
This could be great, I miss all the right-click options on the layers in illustrator. Copy/paste/duplicate/rename group/ungroup etc. Have quick actions pop-up on a right click like in any other software would change my life. its weird this is missing in the first place.
