Another one is to write your own wrapper for -summarize-.
Here is an example.

. sysuse auto, clear
(1978 Automobile Data)

. wsummarize

                  Obs      Mean        SD       Min       Max
price              69   6146.04   2912.44   3291.00  15906.00
mpg                69     21.29      5.87     12.00     41.00
rep78              69      3.41      0.99      1.00      5.00
headroom           69      3.00      0.85      1.50      5.00

You could also use -fsum- (ssc install fsum)

. gen thisisaverylongvariablename = age
(473 missing values generated)

. fsum age this

Variable | N Mean SD Min Max
-----------------------------+---------------------------------------------
Age (years) | 218860 61.71 12.84 12.72 103.74
thisisaverylongvariablename | 218860 61.71 12.84 12.72 103.74
