How do I delete iPhone identity?

I had to replace my iphone due to damage and when syncing the new phone, a new name was applied to the phone so now in itunes I have 2 iPhone databases, "Dan's iPhone", and "iPhone". Where do I find the data bases on my mac and delete the database that I am not using. I tried to restore the Iphone, but when I reconnect it to the computer, it asks me to which identity I want to sync the phone. Thanks.

if you go to itunes, preferences, and then the right most tab is syncing. if you click the one you dont want and then click remove backup that should do the trick
