You can change the name of the iPod by double clicking its current name in iTunes from under the Devices section in the left hand pane and typing in a new one.
What is it you are trying to do exactly? Are you wanting to remove everything from the iPod? If so, perform a full restore of the device in iTunes. This process wipes all media/content from the iPod and sets it back to its original default settings.
