There is no built in hotkey for changing the name of a layer in Photoshop, nor can any be found online.
But here's how to add one yourself!
- Click Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts
- Select shortcuts for Application Menues
- In the list, find Layer > Layer (Group) Properties and assign it a hotkey (e.g CTRL-Shift-R or CMD-Shift-R)
This will allow you to assign the layer a name and a color in a nice little popup.
