[R] Idiomatic looping over list name, value pairs in R

Considering the python code:

for k, v in d.items(): do_something(k); do_something_else(v)

I have the following for R:

for (i in c(1:length(d))) { do_something(names(d[i]));
do_something_else(d[[i]]) }

This does not seem seems idiomatic. What is the best way of doing the
same with R?
