alternate way to rename nodes

Currently I think the only way to rename a node is to right click on it and select "Set name".  I would like to purpose some alternate options for renaming:

1) Assign a shortcut to that "Set name" command.  Letter "n" or Ctrl-n for example.  If it was a ctrl- command then it seems like it would also go under the Edit pull down menu.

2) Another really nice option would be an editable name field somewhere inside a node (when editing parameters or values).  That way when coping/pasting a node and jumping inside it to change a value or two it would be a snap to also rename it right then and there.
