oh, I see. When right clicking a collection, it is said to be an album 
in the top left of the windows. As this menu is different from the one 
in real album, it should be possible to give it an other name (collection)

it's a solution, but needs rescanning

yes, same for me (digikam 5.0xx)

it may be possible to edit the sqlite base to change the name, but this 
is not obvious
