Rename a label in Gmail

When you create a label in Gmail, you'll have to supply a name for it: this name will be displayed on the left hand side, to identify said label in the listing, but also be shown inside email messages to which you have applied that particular label (as shown on the screenshot below). Especially since you can add multiple labels to a single email, short names make sense, in which case Gmail lets you can go back and rename a label.

Change the name of an existing email label in Gmail

This is all it takes to rename a label in your Gmail account; note that behind the scenes, Google doesn't keep track of email labels based on their names, which means that renaming labels will not create any issue: Gmail will simply display the new name instead of the old one, but no email messages will lose the label that was attached to them under its old name.
