How to rename app shortcuts on Android
To change the name of an app shortcut you'll need a custom Android launcher. For example, Nova Launcher or Apex Launcher - both available to download for free via Google Play - will do the job. We're going to use Nova Launcher in this article (by the way, in case you don't know yet, here's how to change your default Android launcher).
Assuming you've installed Nova and you're using it as your default launcher, you can rename any app shortcut in just a few quick steps: long press on the app, tap on the Edit button that shows up, type in the new name, and hit Done. And that's it - the app shortcut will now have the custom name that you wanted it to.
