Hello BlenderPete,

Thanks for bringing this to my attention! When the addon was in early development, the latest version of Blender available was 2.78. In 2.78 it was not possible to update an object name in this type of UI object property. But I just checked and starting in Blender 2.79, it is actually now possible to update the object property when the object name changes, so I will be making these changes to the addon interface.

Implementation Notes:
