  If you're willing to re-format you can set the label
 at the time you do that:

    # mkfs.vfat /dev/sdc1 -n mylabel

  Otherwise checkout the tools included in the 
 "mtools" package.  To show the current lable:

    # mlabel -i /dev/sdc1 -s ::

  To change it:

    # mlabel -i /dev/sdc1 ::my_external

  NOTE: /dev/sdc1 is chosen as an example..

Let me steal your soul?
