Android doesn't seem to offer a way to name (or rename) a paired bluetooth device. For example, if I have two identical Bluetooth headsets, I can't readily tell which is which.

Do you know of any way to rename a paired bluetooth device? Perhaps an application?

The bluetooth device names come from the device itself, so unless there's a way to do this from your headset, this isn't possible, at least on stock Android. A quick google search revealed a thread that claimed CyanogenMod 7 can do this (it creates an alias for the device, doesn't change the name itself).
