How to rename surface in OpenStudio?

OpenStudio gives sequential names to surfaces (like Surface 1, Surface 2, etc). I am looking for a way to rename the surfaces based on the space name. It does not have to be realistic (like Bedroom Surface West, Bedroom Surface North, etc), it can also be sequential (like Bedroom Surface 1, Bedroom Surface 2, etc).

There's a measure for that. This one renames surfaces based in parent space and orientation. Orientation is just integer between 0 and 360. Was convenient at the time, but ideally saying west would have been better.
