FWIW, Bookmark+ allows these kinds of automatic renaming:

(defcustom bmkp-eww-buffer-renaming nil
  "Whether and how an EWW buffer is renamed.
Non-nil values affect EWW behavior even when bookmarks are not used.

* nil:    Do not rename buffer - use `*eww*' (vanilla EWW behavior).
* `url':  Rename buffer to web-page title plus last 20 chars of URL.
* `page': Rename buffer to web-page title (only)."
  :type '(choice
          (const :tag "Do not rename buffer (use name `*eww*')"                 
          (const :tag "Rename buffer to web-page title plus last 20 chars of 
URL"  url)
          ;; Any symbol other than `page' and nil is treated the same as `page'.
          (const :tag "Rename buffer to web-page title"                         
  :group 'bookmark-plus)

The code (e.g. for the after-render hook function)
is in file `bookmark+-1.el'.
