    Thanks, we are trying to be ;-)

    You want to change the name in the admin panel, or URLs in source code?
    If later, then rename child theme directory - it is not updated. You will have to reactivate it after renaming.

    With kind regards.

    Hey :-)

    You will have to rename the main theme as well then, and probably in style.css of the child theme, change Template: rife to your new name.

    I am not sure how it affects updates, but I suppose you will have to update manually after such change.

    With kind regards.
