Component name aliases

Hi there!

I’ve been working more closely with design systems in the company I work at and I’ve been noticing that people tend to have multiple names for the same component. Even though in the design system it has a specific name, people tend to pull on names the components had before or even names of similar components in different design systems.

Think about it I wondered if it would make sense to add an option to create aliases for components. It could work in a similar fashion as the “description” and “documentation link” fields. Any word added to the “aliases” field would return that component as a result in case the user searches for it in the asset menu.

This could also help with global teams. Maybe the same component could have names in different languages added as aliases.
