    Could we have the ability to rename static IP addresses?

    For example, you may have reserved a static ip address to use as your production ip for your web server, and names it "Production Web IP". Then later on the use of that server may change, and it is no longer used as your production web server, but you need to keep the same IP address (maybe it is registered with some external service as an allowed origin for some service that you will still be using.

    In this case you will end up with a Static IP Address called "Production Web IP", that is not what is says it is. Whilst functionally it will work fine, it may become confusing for the purpose of administration in the future.

    Therefore it would be useful to be able to rename that static ip address, for example:

    gcutil setaddress "Production Web IP" --new_name "SMS Server"
