As do I, Nice to know that I am not the only one.

If you want a simple way to rename the existing "tab" add this to .screenrc. 
bindkey -k k9 title

This sets <F9> to change the title of the screen.

Let me look in my .screenrc:

# The resultsing command give you a status line that
#  looks like this:
#   | Screen(s): 0 slrn  1* bash  <blanks zapped>  5:07PM  Thu, Aug/24/2006 |
#  (The pipes indicate the edges of the xterm/console).

# Green text, time, and date; windows in blue:
hardstatus alwayslastline "%{=b}%{G} Screen(s): %{b}%w %=%{kG}%C%A  %D, 
%M/%d/%Y "
