for even better overview, it is possible to label harddisks & partitions like this:

# this can be done on mounted  ext4 / ext3 / ext2 partitions
# swap partitions can not be labeled
tune2fs -L "LABEL" /dev/sdaX

# with xfs it is more complicated
# can only be labeld on "offline" / unmounted partitions
xfs_admin -l /dev/disk/by-id/dm-name-cl-root 
label = ""

xfs_admin -L "root" /dev/disk/by-id/dm-name-cl-root 
xfs_admin: /dev/disk/by-id/dm-name-cl-root contains a mounted filesystem
fatal error -- couldn't initialize XFS library
