There are two easy ways to do it.

If you have it set to show the drive icon on the Desktop in the Finder, then click on the drive icon once to "highlight" the drive. Wait a second then click on the text of the drive name below the drive icon. This will result in the text being highlighted. You should then be able to type the new name of the drive and hit "return" to "accept" the name change.

The second way is to open a Finder window. Find the name of the mounted drive along the sidebar. Right-click on the drive and there should be a pop-up menu with the option to "Rename <drivename>", where <drivename> is the current hame of the drive. Selecting that option will highlight the drive name. Then type the new name and hit "return".
