You can rename the LUN using lun move command even when it is online:
sin*> lun show /vol/volt/lunt
/vol/volt/lunt 117.7m (123379200) (r/w, online) <-------- lun is online
sin*> lun move /vol/volt/lunt /vol/volt/luntRenamed <-------- lun move, same volume different name.
sin*> lun show /vol/volt/luntRenamed
/vol/volt/luntRenamed 117.7m (123379200) (r/w, online) <-------- lun is online

AFAIK data won't be affected but not sure whether the LUN mapping would be intact. you can do a test with normal LUN before you rename the OS LUN. Just rename a LUN that is mapped and verify the mapping is intact and the LUN is still accessible from OS. If yes, then you should be able to do the same on OS LUN.

It won't affect data access from the host side. No downtime. It can also change the path within the volume or qtree as long as in the same volume.. you can lun move from /vol/volt/lun to /vol/volt/qtree/lun for example.
