In the past. Use the icon popup menu, select Properties, select the General tab, and modify the text.

We can do this under TDEHW too, but the change is retained only on a physical port basis. Change the physical port that the device is attached and the icon label must be changed again. Considering that many systems these days have several USB ports that are easily accessible, that means several edits for the same device. TDEHW needs a way to keep the same icon label regardless of which physical port is used.

The UUID scheme would be one way to retain that information. :-)
