I'm set up as an administrator of the system. If I try to use the configuration option to change the name from 'Discussion Forums' I get the following error message:-

Access Denied saving Web Part properties: either the Web Part is embedded directly in the page, or you do not have sufficient rights to save properties (Web Part 'SharePoint Forums').

Do I need to have still more privilege, or does this happen for everyone?

I've seen this if the web part is on a portal page vs. a WSS site and not sure what the problem might be (or if it's a true bug or something just silly) so there's no workaround right now.

You can however change some properties via the web part menu itself. Just modify the web part and in the configuration pane at the bottom is the field to change the name of the forum.
