It is not currently possible to script this because its not possible to know which artboards are selected. There is no such hook in the scripting api*. But its possible to change name just not based on selection.

It is possible that the plugin API has these functions, but given that only newest version o illustrator CC can even inteligently do this I doubut its well documented. Atleast in the current SDK there seems to be no mention of this. So given that thi sis the case and if we add the extra overhead of plugin development its not worth the time involved.

* This is what happens when the API is not a core design feature of your application, one can not really add a API it must be the first thing that is done every time something gets done.
