Change the displayed name of a mounted volume on mac.

I am mounting multiple network shares at start up using a shell script.  I would like to see the names of the volumes on the desktop and not the actual folder names.  Is this possible?

No .. not really .. the mounted share will always display the name of the associated folder and not the parent volume.

What you can do is mount the shared folder ... create an ALIAS and rename the ALIAS to whatever you want.

If you then change the Finder preferences NOT to show mounted volumes on the desktop ... you can leave the aliases on the desktop and click these to open the associated folder
