Using this Windows 8 RSS Reader
As you get to the main screen of modern reader, you will be shown all the features that are available to you. Add news feed source, To add new news feed source, you just have to right click anywhere on the interface of the app. A upper flyout would be shown to you.

In it, firstly, the old name would be displayed which would be displayed with a blue background (in this case I love free software). Just mention new name and hit the rename option.
