How to change an items name in a mod?

A Forum Thread for Team Fortress 2

So, I'm making a mod, and I want to change an items name, I don't want to give away the mod, so for example, I want to change 'Scattergun' into 'Lava Popper' or something. I know this is scripting but where do I do it exactly? And also, how can I make it orange text, like it's strange when it's not?

    You cannot change the item color yourself, it will be orange itself if the weapon itself you modded is strange.
