How can the Azure portal be improved?

Friendly Alias Names

Allow resources to have a friendly alias name inside the portal. Obviously it will not be used to access the resource, it will just make the portal easier to navigate. Also would only need to be unique to the one portal or subscription.

I don't mind if my Database is called fdstrdfs but let me find it by Product SQL Server...etc

    Thanks for your response Michael.

    Personally I would like it to be available to other users. Out company would have a consistent naming scheme across all resources. It also would help with the creation of new resources as you do not have to worry about the name as a lot of them you only work with by copying and pasting and then is hidden in the background. I would be happy to have all random names if I could use aliases.
