Does the device have a label on it? This is what's usually used to
derive the name of the mountpoint.
Running blkid on the device should show if this is the case, e.g.:
$ sudo blkid /dev/loop0
/dev/loop0: LABEL="alabel" UUID="6ed859a5-f470-4995-9311-5f92062036c4"
I'm faking this with a loop device as I had no spare partitions on this
box to show it with but if that is the case for you then you can change
the label using the e2label command (for ext2/3/4 file systems).
