Activities you can perform on custom objects

Renaming—You can rename custom objects without restriction. The only restriction is that you must not suffix the object name with __c.For general information about renaming objects, see Renaming objects.

To identify the following types of custom objects, you can also look for the value "Custom" in the Customization Type column:
