    I am trying to get rid of the link on my site that directs towards the 'home page'. This is mainly for esthetic reasons, so even if I could change the title of this link, that would be great. Help!

    without including any info to your site, like a link or so, it's hard to help you.

    It's a customized twentytwelve template, so if there's no menu specified, it lists the pages, with a home button (if I remember correctly).

    Go to Appearance > Menus
    You can create a custom menu there without the home button, save it and select that menu in primary menu.

    I have a similar problem, Beee. It's about to drive me nuts.

    I am using the Twenty Eleven template, and I have a home button on my header that I can't figure out how to change. I went to:
    Settings -> Reading -> clicked "Static Page" -> changed "Front Page" to the page I wanted to use as my Landing Page -> I then changed "Post Page" to the page I wanted to be my next page.

    I don't want either of these pages to be called "Home," but when I click on "Home" I go to the page I selected as my "Front Page." This page is called "Welcome" in every possible location that I could find, except on my header tab.

    I have also attempted to try:
    Appearance -> Menus -> But it is named properly, there. I also can't find any pages named "Home" anywhere on my site. I am pulling my hair out, here. If you can help me, I'd be eternally grateful.

    tmitchell, your template uses

    wp_nav_menu( array( 'theme_location' => 'primary' ) );

    if you didn't change anything.

    First WP will check if a primary menu is defined in your menus. If not it uses wp_page_menu() to generate a menu, which includes a home link.

    So basicly, create a menu in Appearance -> Menus, save it and set that as primary menu.

    That should do the trick.
