Many thanks to Mr rich cole, Claudio Lopes, et al.
Following your suggestion, I create a symbolic link by
#ln -s /dev/abc /devices/pseudo/clone\@0\:eri
and make a file /etc/hostname.abc0. 
After reboot the interface name is changed from eri0 to abc0.

#However, if FW-1 of checkpoint is installed in the box previously, 
 the interface could not be up even "accept abc" is added to

Any idea?

Best regards,
