Is it possible to create a column description, or a second name for a column?

I mean to create a column that has more than one name, or add a description for the column title itself. This is for large datasets with a huge number of columns; when column names are shortened, acronyms, a numerical identifier, or simply aren't self explanatory.

@avierywan,

Right-click on your field and select Properties, you are able to add description for the field.

Thank you, I hadn't seen that option because I was using an older version.

Is there a way to automate adding the field descriptions either using an import or using M queries.?
