Right click over the tab, select Rename session, or double click the 

For the longest time I treated konsole as just another xterm clone.  I 
turned off all the toolbars and tabs to minimize desktop real estate.  
I routinely had a number of separate, overlapping konsoles cluttering 
up my desktop.  Then I "discovered"  what the extra features like tabs 
and bookmarks were good for.

If you use bookmarks in konsole you can set the name that is displayed.  
At work I have bookmarks for most of my servers as well as a number of 
other boxen I deal with regularly.  I typically have one konsole 
running with several  sessions open in different tabs.  Shift-arrow 
toggles between them without leaving the keyboard.  Holding down shift 
and toggling left and right arrows is a quick way to visually see diffs 
between two similar files.
