Naming Nets from a List of names

Why is it the most difficult thing to do the simplest task?

I have a connector of non-sequentual and unique names (up to 300 pins).

Most of these are already defined in a nice spreadsheet as text.

 

What I want to do is assign net names from this list for example:

 

USB_PD_D+, USB_PC_D+, USB_PB_D+, USB_PA_D+, CONFIG_GPIO_1, CONFIG_GPIO_3, CONFIG_GPIO_5, LAN_ESW1_3_P, LAN_ECM1_3_P

 

There appears to be no method available to do this.  The Add Properties dialog box assumes you want to sequentially name things which is useless in a case like this.

The add properties dialog box chokes if you enter the text as above for a prefix and remove "null" the index and increament values.
