The name showing here is the "description" of the chrome.exe binary (PE)  file, the description is specified in file src\chrome\app\chrome_version.rc.version. You can modify the "@PRODUCT_FULLNAME@" macro to a hard coded string. And the  "@PRODUCT_FULLNAME@" macro is from file src\chrome\app\theme\chromium\BRANDING, modify the branding file is better.
