These are just default names, but I think I could make the name better.
How about <part #>-<i2c address>-vout<#> such as "ltc2978-5c-vout0"

Problem with that is that i2c bus numbers are not static, which would
make it quite difficult to describe the regulator in devicetree data.

Any idea what other regulators do in such situations ?

What's there is correct (modulo the _en), the names are local to the
chip. If the user actually cares they will be providing the name of the
supply on the board anyway.

Great, thanks a lot.
