South part of Etetna city, inside the last tall building before the city exit to route 206 (cycling road). Talk to him and he'll rename your pokemon. NOTE: You can't re-name a Pokemon you didn't caught or hatch.

Hope this helps!

You can go to the name rater in Eterna city there should be a sign outside of the house that he is in. Also like pity said you can't rename Pokemon you didn't catch yourself
