    I know this is an old, dead issue, but I had it today. It wouldn't rename and nothing I did would fix it, until I read the suggestion by HAZANLUCK. I changed my layout and that did the trick. Everything seems fine now.

    Guys just simply change layout from the top menu go to Window -> Layouts and then you can able to rename your object.
    and then you can return to your choice default if you want.

    Had this issue too, however, I can no longer rename in inspector - unsure if this issue is unique to my copy of unity, but I cannot edit names or properties in the inspector or hierarchy bar?
