Is there a way to automatically name objects?

Basically, I'm looking for a way to Go To Field by calculated fieldname within a script. You can't, there's no such script step. But there is a Go To Object script step, that takes calculated object names. So if I give all of my fields on every layout Object Names that are the same as the field name, I'm home free. That's an awful lot of clicking and typing though, even if I limit myself to the few layouts on which I currently expect to need this to work (at the expense of future versatility).

 

So I'd like a way to automate the process of naming things. Basically, loop through every field on the current layout and give it an objectname of [fieldname]. Anyone know of a way to do this? Plugin maybe? (Or of course if there's a way to Go to Field by calculated fieldname, like how Set Field By Name works, that'd be even better!)
