Profiles actually have two names, the external one you see in the Finder and an internal one which is used by Photoshop and other applications. Occasionally they are not even the same.
You need special profile editing software to modify the internal name of a profile.

Actually, if you have Mac OS X, just double-click on the profile in the Finder. That opens the profile by launching the ColorSync Utility. Once there, you will see that the profile has a series of tags (whose number and order varies from one profile to the next).
Scroll down until you find the 'desc' tag ("Localized description strings"). Click on it *once*, and you will see at the bottom of the profile's window a few boxes (3, to be exact). The one that reads "ASCII Name:" is the one that represents the *internal* name of the profile, which can be different (and often is) from the name the profile has in the Finder.
Highlight the internal name in the "ASCII Name:" box (leave the other 2 boxes alone). Replace it with the desired name, then save (Command-S) and close the profile. You're done.
What Marco describes in detail is an example of what I had in mind when I mentioned special profile editing software to modify the internal name of a profile.
Thank you, Marco. :)
Thank you for the guidance.
