Renaming PCIe m.2 drives in Windows 10

How do I rename PCIe m.2 drives?
I recently built a new PC using the ASUS X99-DELUXE II motherboard which has an on-board PCIe m.2 slot and support bracket, and includes a PCIe card adapter for a second PCIe m.2 card. I installed two MyDigitalSSD 240 GB PCIe SSD drives with no problem and I loaded Windows 10 on one of them, no problem. I think Windows is installed on the motherboard m.2 card, but I'm not sure. Both are named BPX and I can't figure out how to change that name. In Disk Management I don't have the same renaming options as I have for SATA drives.

Thanks.
Bill

I do not beleive there is a way to change the physical name of the device.
I do know that in the BIOS each drive even though it may be the exact same has a different identifier in front of it. Usually in the form of P0, P1, P2, P3.

bailojustin thanks. Sorry for the delay in responding. I was traveling. I thank you nailed it. Unfortunately both of the M.2 drives are named BPX which isn't very useful. Also the M.2 drives don't have drive numbers (such as P0, P1, ...) or other unique identifiers assigned in BIOS. I suspect that this is a shortcoming of either UEFI BIOS, the M.2 device property scripts or both that will get straightened out at some point. Thanks for the response.
