Renaming or Naming gateway

I was curious about how Ignition Gateway Names the gateway. Is there a way to set the Gateway name of your choice or rename the Gateway without breaking the system bindings?

No, you'll have to re-establish them. The gateway name on a fresh install is constructed from the machine's network host name. It then becomes part of a gateway backup.

I see. Since this name represent the gateway in a gateway network, an option to name your gateway should be provided during commissioning.

You can name it right after commissioning before setting up the GAN.
