How can we query the USB Device name that is assigned interactively by
users(e.g. any arbitrary name assigned by them,using 'rename' option through
GUI) ?

What you are actually renaming from Explorer depends on the device. If it
is a USB storage device then what you are renaming is the file system volume
and so you'd need to query for the volume and get the name off that. If it
is a portable device like a music player then you are actually renaming the
devnode and you can query the name from that.
