How can I change the Disk name?
Im not sure how this happened, and it annoys me....
It annoys me everytime i open disk utility
I would like to change the "Mavericks" disk name

I know how to change the "Yosemite" status disk name, but I want to change the Internal disk name

any help would be much appreciated

the name i want to change is not the displayed disk name. but the actual disk name. sorry this probably isn't very clear.

I must have changed it somehow when I was testing Yosemite under Mavericks on a separate partition.

I found the answer!
its very simple really:

diskutil cs rename "OldName" newVolumeGroupName

I found the answer here:

I've got the same issue. Disk Utility shows 'Yosemite' for both the LVG and the main drive/partition and I would like to change my SSD's LVG name back to the original name (which was something like 'Samsung 850 Pro SSD'). So, here's a stupid question... If the current LVG name is 'Yosemite' and I want to change it to 'Samsung 850 Pro SSD', would I past in the following command line as is?

diskutil cs rename "Yosemite" Samsung 850 Pro SSD


Thanks!

Yes, but i would put it like
diskutil cs rename "Yosemite" "Samsung 850 Pro SSD"
just to be safe with the spaces.

I issued the very same command just a few days ago.
