Renaming an SD card

I want to rename my SD cards so they show up with descriptive names instead of NO NAME. Using the usual Mac techniques (slow double-click of the icon or renaming in Get Info) does not "stick" once the card is removed and re-inserted. I've heard I can use Disk Utility to rename, but only if I format in FAT 32. I've also heard that it will render the card unusable by the camera. Any advice?
