Actually I do not know such an option.

You can change the Label of the field in the objects but the field name itself have to be changed in script.

AFAIK there is no direct way to do this, but you might be able to use variables to substitute fields, but they might complicate things so I would probably think thrice before implementing that

Maybe you could rename the fields with a rename-statement, maybe combined with mapping if there are many of them: How to Rename Fields.
