Are you looking at changing the partition's volume label ? You
can use 'tune2fs' utility to do so.
e.g. tune2fs -L 'New Volume' /dev/sda6
Note that, you might end up having serious issues by changing volume
label of Linux partitions on most modern Linux distros - in many cases
the system would refuse to boot, if you change the volume label of
the / partition.
If you wish to rename folders, 'mv /home /home2' should do. Again, this
would land you into a broken system - where users end up losing their
home folders (unless of course, you modify the user's profiles or
create another /home folder and populate user's home folders in them.
We are not very clear about what your question is. In any case, I'm
