Is there any simple way of changing the name of an app within the App Drawer? Most of what I am finding when doing a search are threads a few years old, so figured maybe there might be other options to accomplish this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Their's an application in the Play Store called "App Name Editor" maybe that will help you out.

Thanks for the assist, but that only works on the homescreen and not within the app drawer.

As far as I know, you can only do this if using a custom launcher. I use Nova Launcher and you can edit names, change icons and so on.
Hope this helps

That helped a freakin TON! I had Nova Launcher but till you mentioned it having the option I never noticed. After reading your post it made me go back in and noticed after hitting Edit on the shortcut on homepage that there was the 3 dots for the extra options menu and there it was... and works like a champ!

Thank you.
