FM already has this feature.

1. In the Master Page views, click on the MP name in the status bar.

2. A dialogue box called "Master Page Name" will pop up, where you can enter a new name for the Master page.

Note: You can not rename the Left and Right master pages.

I wish that this had been put in the online help for FrameMaker. Below is what is currently available in under the Master and reference pages section:

*********************

Rename or delete a custom master page

1)           Display the master page, and choose Special > Delete Page.

note:  You cannot rename the master pages named Left and Right, and you cannot delete the left or right master page or any master page currently assigned to a body page.

*********************

There is no mention of the instructions that you provided above. Also, I wish there were an easier way to do this. For example, if a rename feature can be made available under the Format > Page Layout submenu.

Here we are in 2018 (FrameMaker 2017, 14.0.2.425), and the help is still wrong! It now says: "To rename or delete a custom master page, display the master page, and choose Format > Delete Page <master page name>". But the command is actually Format > Document > Delete Page <master page name>... and it provides no way to rename the master page at all. Perhaps Adobe should spend some if its billion dollar profits on some decent testers and help authors?
