I would like to know if there is a way to rename device under sysfs?

For example, I have a class regulator with severals devices under it

# ls /sys/class/regulator/
regulator.0   regulator.11  regulator.3   regulator.6   regulator.9
regulator.1   regulator.12  regulator.4   regulator.7
regulator.10  regulator.2   regulator.5   regulator.8

Each of this regulator have a name

# cat /sys/class/regulator/regulator.8/name
# cat /sys/class/regulator/regulator.9/name

I would like to know if it's possible to rename regulator.8 to VCC_3V3 for example ?

Edit : I precise that I want to rename the device in sysfs and not have a symlink to it under /dev/<device_class>/<device_name> as I could export it with udev rules
