Not use period for duplicate names

Right now by default blender names objects like Box, Box.001, Box.002.

I want it by default to maybe use some other character like ~ or something. I couldn’t find any settings or info so far.

what do you mean character like ~

Do you have any particular reason why a ‘~’ would be a better separator between the ‘box’ and the ‘001’ than the period? Seems like a pretty pointless change to me.
