I use AUCTeX and RefTeX in Emacs..  The control sequence C-c ) gets you 
a list of all the labels in your document, or a list of certain types 
or references (e.g. labels that refer to equations).  The list tells 
you what section the label is contained in and is usually smart enough 
to give you some context (in the case of an equation, it writes out the 
equation, for example).  To insert, select the label you want and press 
enter.  It also has a couple of other niceties that (try to) make your 
life easier, but I won't bore you with the details.  Try it out.
