Rename Custom Field

Is there a way to rename a custom field?  So there user created field called "Touchdown".  It has a configuration and sub fields (I'm not interested in changing these).  It seems every article I find tells how to change the configured values for the field or talks about risks in changing out of the box fields that come with Jira.  Is there a way for me to change "Touchdown" to "Field Goal" as the custom field name?  Thanks

If you have admin rights, just go to Administration > Issues > Custom Fields and then select to edit the Touchdown field. https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiracloud/adding-editing-and-deleting-a-custom-field-776636410.html

Thank you Mikael.  You know, like so many other people asking questions, it seems so simple!  I cant believe in the 45 minutes I played around looking for this I could not find it.  Thank you again - appreciate the help.
