This is fairly minor, but would be nice if you could change the name of a saved dashboard filter.  Discovered a typo in one of ours that wasn't caught the first time around so I had to delete and re-create because the name field was locked.  Odd, because I can change the selection of reports and field mapping.

Hi Jeff,

Currently, this is not possible because we use the name of the filter to uniquely identify it on a dashboard. The same is used when end-users set it to a different value and its state is preserved per user. If we let the filter name change, it will impact the end-user state on the filter as renaming actually means a "new filter". 

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks
Venky
