That's very easy. To do it from iTunes, do a delayed double-click on the iPod icon (a delayed double click is click, pause 0.5 sec, click again). The name will become editable - rename it to whatever you like.
From the Finder, select the iPod's icon and Get Info on it (File->Get Info or Command+I), then change the name in the Name & Extension field.

That only works if the iPod icon is on your desktop. If it's sidebar only, like mine is, that method fails.
