How do I rename the apps on my home screen?
I have tried putting the app icons in edit mode ("wiggle mode") but I cannot find a way to rename them.

You can't normally rename applications on your home screen(springboard). However if your device is jailbroken i.e you have cydia you can use Icon Renamer to change names of your applications. If you are not jailbroken wait for iOS 11 jailbreak and then rename your icons using this tweak :)
You have to give it the name you want when you first add the icon to your home screen. This might mean adding the link a second time, and putting your desired name in the "Add to home screen" facility. I just click in the middle of the provided name, and delete from there until the cursor is back at the beginning of the field. Then I type the name I want for the shortcut, and delete anything else. After I have added it to the home screen I go and delete the wrongly named one - using the "jiggle" process.
Create a Shortcut - with the script option to open an App. Pick the app you want to rename. Name the shortcut what you’d like the app to appear as. Then click on the icon in the name area and pick a color and glyph. Choose the add to Home Screen option. Now remove the original app grime the Home Screen. Do not uninstall it of course.
