Windows® 7 Home Premium SP1 [x64]
 
 

Which, of course, isn't worth the hassle.

I'll further investigate this issue.

Open regedit

HKLM > System > Controlset001 > Control > Network.

In there, find your connection name, click on it, and in the right window right-click the Name string, Modify and you should be able to edit the name. Ok to confirm. Here is an example.

Were you able to find any connections eg Local Area Connections in those folders, or just not the connection you want to edit?
