There doesn't appear to be a way to rename a library.  Any suggestions as to how to accomplish this?
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

I think this might solve it:
1. Rename the library folder (by default named "MusicBee" and located at C:\<username>\Music\MusicBee) to what you want the library to be called.
2. Run MusicBee. It'll say that your library can't be found and you need to relocate it.
3. Select your library file in the renamed folder to relocate it.
Let me know if it works

I was going to suggest the same as Jorge24 but wanted to try it myself first in case it stuffed something up.
I've just tested it twice now and it works fine.

Evidently there is nothing more complicated happening than MusicBee using the name of the folder as the name of the library.
Bee excellent to each other...
