Change the title of shortcut

I am so fed up with spending HOURS on what should be a simple task. I have an internet shortcut saved to my home screen. I don't like the title. All I want to do is rename it. I have seen a similar question posted thousands of different places with all kinds of suggested apps and methods and NOT ONE has worked.
A long press of the shortcut does nothing but give the option at the top of the screen to 'X Remove'. I have downloaded literally a dozen or more suggested apps and not one of them changes this behavior. Of all these apps, when I go into their menu to find/rename an app it only lists or finds pre-installed apps/widgets/shortcuts. NONE have allowed me to change MY shortcut. Why is this SO FRIGGIN HARD?

What phone do you have? If the stock launcher doesn't include that option you need to install a custom one like Nova.
