    Anybody know why Sierra is appending a number 1 to my Time Machine drive name?

    If i try to edit it the change doesn't stick. A reboot didn't help. Do you know how to remove the number 1?

    Eject the disk. Go to /Volumes/ and see if there's a stuck link called "LaCie Time Machine" - if so delete it. Re-connect disk & rename.

    Or just call it something different, like "LaCie Backup"

    You were 100% correct, a screwed up link in /Volumes/. Nice job.
