Runtime evaluation of Custom Labels

Development (Apex, LWC & VF)

Custom Labels can be accessed in Apex using System.Label.label_name notation and in Visualforce using  $Label.label_name. The problem is that in order to use a Custom Label one has to know it's name at design time. It is impossible to evaluate the Custom Labels at runtime by knowing their name.
It'd be ideal to have an ability to dynamically evaluate Custom Labels at runtime, similar to System.getCustomLabel('label_name');
