This extension is excellent so far. I have a request to make, though:

Would it be possible to make it so the popup allows you to do the following...
1. Select whatever instances you want to modify on the stage
2. Run the command
3. Selectively name each instance (think of how 'Find & Replace' works in other programs)
For example, say I wanted to select a bunch of text fields, and name each of them something like 'tfButtonLabel', 'tfHeader', 'tfHelp', etc. - this command would be a fantastic timesaver, rather than individually clicking each text field and then clicking the instance name field. I'm excited for the possibilities of this extension!
