Can you change a part name in Onshape?

All of the parts are numbered in default, eg. "Part 1" "Part 2" etc. Is there a way to change this title to what we want ? Or is that option not offered in Onshape?

    Right click on the current part name and select "Rename" from the resulting drop down list.

    Note you must right click on the part name in the part tree (not actual part in the graphics area) and you must only have one part selected otherwise the context sensitive nature of the menus will hide the rename item command.
