To change an existing list’s or library’s title or
description, open the list’s or library’s settings page by switching to
the List ribbon or Library ribbon and clicking the List Settings or
Library Settings button. At the top of the page that appears, under the
General Settings section, click Title, Description, and Navigation link.
On the page that opens, shown in Figure 1,
you can set a new title for the list or library, change the
description, and choose whether a link to the list or library should
appear in the quick launch navigation bar.

Changing the name of a list
or library does not change the link to that list or library. The link
stays the same, but the title that is displayed changes.
