How to rename your iPad?

I'm tired of the name I gave my iPad the day I got it... is there a way to rename it? I've been hunting through the options on the iPad, as well as the ones in iTunes, but don't see a way.

Connect it to iTunes. When it appears in the DEVICES list on the left, click on the name to select the iPad and then click on the name again (click on the actual text itself). The name should be editable at that point.

Click on your phone/pad once syncing has completed. It will then let you rename it.
