Interesting question.

So this should happen in the manage dive site screen, I think.
And there editing the name should be possible.

Now there are a few issues with the implementation right now.

- the first time you go to manage the fields aren't populated
- once you get the fields to populate you can edit the name, but that
  clearly causes some uninitialized memory to be read and its value be
  added as new name

But ignoring those it seems that I can edit the name of a site.

So let's fix the bugs and then figure out if that's the flow we want.
