Rename standard AccountName field

Can we rename the AccountName Standard Field label for Name of Account to any other value(Ex:MyName).

I am able to rename the custom object name as an edit link is placed before the object name field.

But i am not able to see any edit button or link before the account name.

 

Please let me know if it is possible. Your Help is appreciated.....

 

Thanks

Renaming of standard fields can only be done if Salesforce.com turns on a switch for you, so contact Support, but even then I'm not certain you can rename the Name field.

This is to rename standard objects label and not the field label. Even I tried renameing standrad field label in custom object but even if I save it on page layout its not reflecting. Is there any way we can rename standard fields of type name is object? Please help!!
