Is there a way (core or plugin) that a closing html tag name changes accordingly when renaming the opening one ? A behaviour similar to multi-selection...

The Zen coding plugin has a command "select matching tag name" which selects the nearest opening and closing tags relative to the cursor.

The ZenCoding plugin has been discontinued, see the alternative: Emmet

(Super) + Shift + K // Rename tag shortcut

Also available via Package Control, under the same name.

Use the Emmet plugin shortcut key to rename tag in your editor:

[Super + Shift + K] on mac //In OSX environment, super key = Command key.
[Ctrl + Shift + '] on windows

It worked perfectly I already tested with sublime text

You can also add this command to userKeyBindings:

{"keys": ["your key bind.."], "command": "rename_tag"} // like super+shift+k
