I'd like to rename nodes with numbers (like their default names do, too). When I rename a node with a number as first letter the error message in the screenshot below appears.

It might be useful to either change this behave (appreciated!) – or to mention this 'no-number-demand-at-first' in the according message.

    Node names are like variable names. Therefore, just as in other programming languages, we don't support numbers as first characters. If we're going to support expressions in the future, the expression parser will get confused. You're right in that it might be mentioned beforehand.
