I changed the name of my new Kindle Fire within my Amazon account by going to Manage My Kindle -> Manage My Devices. Everything seems to have gone fine on the account side, but the upper left hand corner of my Fire still just says "Abby's Kindle". Lamest name ever. It's been about 24 hours since I made the change in my account. Why hasn't it changed? What step am I missing?

Have you tried hitting the "sync" button in the status bar menu? Allegedly that can help (source: – eldarerathis Dec 29 '11 at 16:04

If you haven't tried this yet, I think you should try syncing your device. To sync the device, you tap on the settings button on the top right and select sync.
