How do I make Illustrator default to asking me to give new layers a name?

I'm creating art for Character Animator which is heavy on layers with specific names.  I'd like to save the mousework and clicking necessary for creating and naming each new layer.  I'd prefer* it if I could click on the new layer control and have Illustrator default to asking me for the new layer's name.  Then I'd type the new name, hit enter, and click on the new layer tool without moving and clicking the mouse.

*Since this is what I "prefer" I looked in prefer-ences. Just couldn't find it. 🙂
