Exchange 2010, Personal Archive, Online Archive - Difference? Change names?

I installed and Exchange 2010 server back in 2011, and enabled (what was called "Online Archives") for all of the users at the time.  Over time, (after a SP or an update of some type to Exchange), when I created a new user mailbox, and named it, instead of the archive being NAMED by Exchange "OnlineArchiveXXXXXXX," it created the names as "PERSONALARCHIVEXXXXX."

The client does not like how it looks, feels it might cause confusion when looking at usage reports, and wants to change all the names of the Archive mailbox associated to each user to either OnlineArchiveXXXX or PERSONALARCHIVEXXXX.

Is this something that is doable?  If so can someone point me in the right direction?  If not, same thing, if you could point me to any articles covering the topic I would really appreciate it.

Last question, the Online Archive and Personal Archive under Exchange 2010 where they both have automated archives, they ARE the SAME exact thing, correct?  

Thank you very much.

Yes, they are the same thing.

You can change the name of the archive:

1.  In the EMC, go to Recipient Configuration/Mailbox.
2.  Right-click on the mailbox name of the user you want to edit and go to Properties.
3.  Go to the Mailbox Features tab and you'll see the Archive listed there.
4.  Click on the Archive mailbox and then click the Properties button.  This brings up a dialog box where you can change the name of the archive.
