Is there a way to rename USB Ethernet interfaces in System Preferences? I'm running macOS Catalina.

I have 2 USB Ethernet adapters - both are AX8817. Kinda hard to tell them apart.

I'm in this menu quite often, changing IPs. Would be nice to have some control over the names used here.

Rename them using the cogwheel at the bottom of the window.
