Renaming columns in a Custom Content Type

When working with Custom Content Types in SharePoint, you may have a requirement such that the Content Type column names differ from the names of the Site Columns.

Of course, because Content Types utilize Site Columns, you cannot directly rename the names of the columns directly from within the Content Type (as shown below)

Therefore, you are left with either renaming the Site Columns directly or using the more preferred approach--attaching the Content Type to a List or Document Library.

Once the Content Type has been associated with a  List or Document Library (by using the "Allow management of Content Types" option), you can easily edit and rename the list columns to match the specified requirements.
