Change the Name of a SharePoint (WSS) Site

When you change the name of a sub-site in a SharePoint site, the name is changed automatically in all the UI, except the top link bar (of the parent site) and in the Sites list of the quick launch zone (also of the parent site).

To be able to change the name there too, you need to go to the parent site, go to Site Settings, select Top link bar, and then click the icon of the link you need to change. Rename it and click OK. Go back to Site Settings, select Quick launch, click the icon of the link you need to change. And again, rename it and click OK. With this 2 supplemental steps (I think) you got what you wanted.
