      Update by Mega_Spud:
      Renaming an item using an anvil increases the prior work penalty, it should not.  It should only add a single level, plus any prior penalty.
      Renaming always costs a single level, in addition to any Prior Work penalty. Renaming will not increase the prior work penalty.

      Repro Steps:

      1. Obtain sufficient XP
      2. Switch to Survival
      3. Rename a new sword in an anvil
      4. Notice the XP cost
      5. Rename it several more times, and notice the exponential increase in cost

      Observed Results:
      The costs doubles each time it's renamed. In Survival, the item will become 'too expensive'  to upgrade, rename, or repair.

      Expected Results:
      Renaming should only cost one level each time, and should not add to the prior work penalty.

      Original Description:

      According to wiki page "Anvil mechanics", renaming items should NOT increase the prior work penalty(Java Edition 1.13.1 works well).

      Affects Platforms: iOS, WIN10
