It depends what you mean. If you just want the name itself to be different,
change title in ext_emconf.php. If you want to change the whole thing so
you can have two running, basically cloning an extension, this is what I do:
If you have an extension called test_ext, and want to name it other_ext,

   - Search replace through extension files,
   - search for 'test_ext', replace with 'other_ext'.
      - search for 'testext', replace with 'otherext'
   - Search replace the extension filenames,
      - search for 'test_ext', replace with 'other_ext'.
      - search for 'testext', replace with 'otherext'
   - Rename title in ext_emconf
   - If you are doing so on an installed extension, rename the extension
   tables (in mysql use RENAME TABLE
   - Clear cache
   - (Re)Install extension as it was the 'old' extension that was installed

I still work with pi_base extensions so I don't know if there are any extra
quirks in extbase extensions.
