How do I rename a disk?

I recently upgraded the OS on my Linode from Ubuntu 16.04 to 20.04. But its disk is still named /dev/sda - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Disk, from its creation in 2016. To avoid future confusion, how can I rename this disk? Thank you.

To rename your Linode's disks, you'll go to the Storage section of your Linode:$LinodeID/storage

You'll see a list of the disks. On the right of that section is the Rename option.
