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

You can name your Pokemon when you visit the Name Rater who is a Veteran in the Eterna Condominiums.
You can't name any Pokemon not caught or hatched by you
