Its possible to change the interface name in Linux and reload without a reboot. It usually happens in Virtual environment where you add / remove interfaces frequently. You need to take note of the interfaces before you do any changes. Make sure that there are no active connections going to the NIC as you are going to restart the network service for the chagesz to take effect. Again you would not need a reboot.
