iTunes 11 + iPhone5: How to Rename Your iDevice?

Since installing the latest iTunes I noticed upon restore my iPhone5 (after being recently restored) now titles itself under a name I would like changed.

It used to be you could simply highlight (right click) the iDevice name and change it within iTunes but now that option appears not to be available.

Anyone know of a workaround?

Certainly not a big deal, but it would be nice to get my device named as I choose instead of iTunes coming up with its own name.

I can double click on the device name and change it within iTunes. For some reason right clicking does not work.

I should really change my phone's name........
