You can shorten -rename- to -ren-, as its help indicates. Apart from that,
if there is no pattern to the -rename-ing, then you have to issue the
commands one after another. A loop would not do much good here...

Subject: st: Renaming multiple variables

Is there an easy way to do multiple renaming of variables in one line
of code?  For example, for v1, v2, v3, and v4 I would like to rename:
 "stockid," "company," "country," and "sector."  If I type in:
"rename v1 stockid v2 company" I get an error message.
