How Did I Assign a Name to My Garmin Edge 205

When I connect my Garmin Edge 205 to Garmin Connect or MapMyRide, it shows a name that I gave it ("Al's GE205"). I remember giving it that name, but now that I have a new one, I can't figure out where that naming can be done (i.e. can't find it in Garmin Connect or in any of the setup options). Anyone know?

I don't remember if this wiped the device or records in the software but I did it using Garmin Training Center. I think I created a profile in it ('User'->'Add new user account...') then added my device to that profile ('User'->'Add new device...') and gave the Edge the name that shows up when I upload using the 'Type in an optional "Nick Name" for this device:' field.

Yes, I think that's where I did it. However, there doesn't seem to be a way to change it.
