    no that would not work. that works for 3rd party apps but not the original apple apps like safari or photos or maps. these are called ex: mobilesafari.app and you cant change it that way. and even if you change other apps' names like TTR to guitar hero, it doesnt work anymore. so i dont suggest changing names of apps.
