Try this
Private Sub ListView1_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, x As Single, y As Single)
  Dim strNewName As String
  If Button = vbRightButton Then
    If Not (ListView1.SelectedItem Is Nothing) Then
      strNewName = InputBox("Enter the new name:", "Item name", ListView1.SelectedItem)
      'do checking on the new value, maybe custom checking
      If strNewName = "" Then
        strNewName = ListView1.SelectedItem.Text
      End If
      ListView1.SelectedItem.Text = strNewName
    End If
  End If
End Sub

the .StartLabelEdit method of the ListView control allows you to edit the listitem.

the AfterLabelEdit event then notifys you when the edit is complete, and what the new name is. You can also cancel the users change here.

GordonP's solution only works if the Listview's LabelEdit property is set to true.. and you double click on the label.

To have your Rename work from a Popup Menu.. you have to set the focus back to the Listview and execute the Listview.StartLabelEdit method. The example below illustrates doing a label edit from another control.. <smile>.

In a Standard.Exe Project.. add a Listview and a Command button and then copy and paste the following into a code window.

<----- Code Begin ----->

Option Explicit

Private Sub Form_Load()
 
  ' Set the Labeledit property to manual
  ' So that the Listview only goes into rename mode when it is told so
  ' If you want double click to work set LabelEdit to lvwAutomatic  ListView1.LabelEdit = lvwManual  

  Dim itmWork As ListItem
  Dim i As Integer
  For i = 1 To 5   ' Add 5 Items
    Set itmWork = ListView1.ListItems.Add(, , "Text" & i)
  Next i

End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
   
   ListView1.SetFocus
   ListView1.StartLabelEdit

End Sub

Private Sub Listview1_AfterLabelEdit _
(Cancel As Integer, NewString As String)
   
   If Len(NewString) = 0 Then
      Cancel = True
   End If

End Sub

<----- Code End ----->
