You can use Babel for this. For example, if your document is in English, go
to the preamble and write something like this



\renewcommand{\contentsname}{The New Name}


For other languages you just need to change every "english" string for the
needed language. For example, in Spanish


          \renewcommand{\contentsname}{El nuevo título}
