Adding new fields allows you to specify the label of the field but the Title field does not. In fact, it just sits there on top acting all high and mighty. I just want to change the label of Title to something like Your name but retain the machine name. Does anyone have an idea how to do it?

Go to Content type, you will have a list of content types of your site. Under Operations click on edit for the content type you want to change the title. Under Submission form settings you can change the "Title field label"


Use themename_preprocess_field in template.php file in theme folder.

function themename_preprocess_field(&$variables, $hook) { 

    if($element['#field_name'] == 'field_xyz') {
      $variables['label'] = "your label name";
