Our apologies for not updating this ask earlier. Renaming Blobs is on our backlog, but is unlikely to be released in the coming year. Today, you can use the “Copy Blob” API as a workaround.
Using the Azure Files service you can address Azure Storage like a network share using the SMB2.1 protocol. This enables usage of normal Windows API’s to rename files and directories. You can get started with the Files service by visiting https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/storage-dotnet-how-to-use-files.

azure restore did not let me chose the name of my restored VHD. Now I can't generalize the image because the Azure generalize command doesn't like the name that Azure chose while restoring my virtual machine. The fact that Azure thinks it is best to chose names for me is ridiculous. I am an administrator and shouldn't be forced to have UID's in the names of my Azure entities.
We are considering this support to rename a VM.Anonymous commented
this is an awful thought process by microsoft.
