Try this expression:


Edit: No, it"s wrong, this expression does not work in this field


This is one of possible solutions: https://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini17.5/hom/locations.html#node_event_files

You should create folder "sop" in your "$HOUDINI_USER_PREF_DIR/scripts" directory, and "object_merge_OnCreated.py" file in that folder:

n = kwargs["node"]
parent_name = n.parent().name()
n.setName(parent_name, unique_name=True)

This will be rename object merge node on creation with name of it parent object node. Disadvantage is that each new object merge node will be rename. Maybe there is more convenient way, i don't know.
