In the GUI:

Configuration->Devices->(Double Click on an AP)

Then, in the center column, at the very top, select "Basic".
Then over to the right, the field you want to modify is labeled "System Name".
After you change the name, click on "Commit and Save" in the top right corner to save your changes.

Steps Chris Kelly previously provided are accurate and correct. If AP is virtual controller and adopting other APs, you can rename the adopted APs host name, including VC, from Configuration/Access Points, click on AP. There are were overrides reside for each AP.
