Looks like maybe PORTNAME.D8A is the file - but it's not straight text, you'd need a special editor to modify it.

Anyone else know more about this? I'm planning to do a themed edit and i'd really love to be able to customize port names.

Edit: It actually looks like it may be a fairly simple format:

1 Byte prefix flag
24 Byte null-padded name string
1 Byte suffix flag

I'll do some experiments tonight to see what else I can glean.
