Renaming partitions

I have been puzzling about the varied responses to attempts to rename partitions, be they entire disks (devices) or a number of them on one 'disk'. I got a little insight from "If the drive you want to rename contains system files, Windows will ask you to provide administrator permission in order for the new name to be set." But I am not convinced that is the only 'condition' for being asked permission. I would love to know the full story on this, especially how to avoid that intrusive querying.

What? Why do you care?!
If you need to rename a partition, then rename it. When you make a major system change Windows will ask for your password to prevent just anyone from messing up your computer.
