Rename "Personal Folders" in Outlook 2003

I want to rename my main Personal Folder header (and file) in Outlook 2003
from "Personal Folder" to my name.

I've tried several things that haven't worked including just renaming the
file. Also did a search on Google but didn't find anything that really
helped. I'm probably not using the right search words. I'd appreciate any
pointers anyone has.

Right click on the personal folder you want to rename and choose properties,
then advanced. You can rename the display name in that dialog. To rename the
file itself, you'll need to locate it on the drive and rename it - when you
restart outlook and it complains, point it to the new name.
