[Request Feature] Ability to change PWA name on Apps Manager page.

At this point we do want to make any website behave like an application. It only has to be added as an application with the possibility of setting a name from the beginning. This is useful when you have more than one profile in the browser. I can install the web X for profile 1 with the name X-1 and the same web X for profile 2 with the name X-2.

But the problem is when I install a PWA whose name is already set. And it is not possible to change it from any page. So when I want to install Outlook for my 3 profiles, I'm left with the same name for all 3 profiles preventing quick identification.

My proposal would be to allow the App Manager to change the name of the PWA and thus better identify it from the start menu and also from the shortcuts that are created.

@cjaviersaldana thank you for the feedback. That is an interesting idea... currently for PWAs, the name comes from the web developer who created the manifest file on the server. We want to honor that name. However, I do see value in this proposal. I'll raise it up at our next standup.
