This is a good solution but you're not actually changing the name of the icon on the screen. What you're doing is associating a label in VoiceOver with the icon on the screen. The icon on the screen itself is not changing. Like I said, a good solution though.

Mike,

Do a two finger double tap and hold, wait for the tri-tone, then you should have an edit box where you can change the name.

    That may mean that they are both using the same icon. Do you have
    any sighted help?

    I've run into issues like that with some weather apps, and when I
    rename one, they both get renamed.

    So, I put them in different folders.

        Hello folks,

        Is it possible to rename an app icon?  I downloaded Google
        Authenticator and Microsoft authenticator. Now both appear on
        the screen as authenticator.  It will be confusing since both
        of these two apps icons are named the same.  Can I rename one
        google authenticator and the other MS authenticator for example?

        Cheers,
