Data Grid View Column Names

I'm using a Win Forms Data Grid View control in unbound mode.

When I add columns using the wizard the first item is the column name.
Everything works fine.

However, if you return to the columns collection and look at the
poperties of an individual column the name property is not in the list.
Is there a way to change (or even find) the name of a column in a data
grid view other than looking at it in the *.Designer.vb file?

In the columns collections "edit columns" screen there is the column
name. It's in as "(name)" If you sort by name it'll be at the top,
otherwise it's under the Design group.
