Renaming each individual layer is rather slow, what if we can rename all selected layers at once?

You can do this in Photoshop CS6.

Double-Click a layer name to rename it, then hit tab to put focus on the next layer to rename it....and so on.

Note: Shift + tab moves up the layer stack, tab moves down the layer stack.
