[R] change column names of several data frames

Dear all,

I have several data frames for which I want to change the column names.

Example data:
data.1 <- data.frame(x1 = rnorm(5))
data.2 <- data.frame(x1 = rnorm(5))

What I want to achieve:
names(data.1) <- "y1"
names(data.1) <- "y1"

Is it possible to achieve this with a loop or any of the apply-functions?

Some (out of several...) unsuccessful attempts using for-loops instead: for(i in 1:2)
names(get(paste("data", i, sep = "."))) <- "y1"

for(i in 1:2)
assign(paste("data", i, sep="."), names(get(paste("natal", i, sep = "."))) <- "y1")

Thanks in advance!
