Rename a Feature Class in fgdb

This may be a very elementary topic, but it appears that simply renaming a feature class within a fgdb in ArcGIS Pro is way slower than through ArcCatalog.  Has anyone else experienced this?  I came across a geoprocessing tool named "Rename", which takes about a minute to run.  This is better than right-clicking and renaming within the catalog pane or view within pro (which takes minutes to process), but not as well as a few seconds within ArcCatalog.  Is this the ESRI recommended process for renaming feature classes?  What used to be so simple, now seems to be over complicated.

More goes on than just a simple rename than in the days of ArcCatalog... given the web, permissions, multiple users etc etc.  Rename... is the way to go, anything else is just a shortcut to it which would account for its increased time given the checks that the shortcut has to make to get to the base tool's code call

... sort of retired...
