Generally, it is sufficient to have data in a list instead of having separate data frames in the global environment. Keeping data in the list is more manageable.

list_df <- mget(ls(pattern = 'df\\d+'))

After that, you can use lapply to do something on each one of them.

lapply(list_df, function(x) names(x))
