You cannot (easily).  It is encoded into the map files.

Oz, I think it can be easily done with Javawa GMTK - a very handy utility for many map-related things: http://www.javawa.nl/gmtk_en.html

Change map name and ID

After selecting a map and clicking this option you can enter a new ID and the names you want to see in MapSource/BaseCamp and the device.

JaVaWa GMTK will check for possible conflicts with other installed maps.
