Just rename from the desktop. Shouldn't be a issue.

Another question how can you completely delete a partition?

That does not delete it. It just erases whatever is in that partition

What are you trying to do? Usually you just run the Bootcamp set-up assistant and all will be good.

i currently have two partition on my macbook pro and I want to merge both of them into one so that I can later partition them out again to run bootcamp

if you're running Leopard, you could resize the partitions now to the size you want later, and erase the second one as Fat-32 (MS-DOS)?

Edit: Disk Util in Leopard should allow in "Partition" for a drive (not a volume, a drive, you get DriveName with VolumeNames indented below, followed by the next drive, indented volumes, etc) by selecting a partition and clicking delete.

Tiger discs will probably only let you erase and start over.
