Change caption name of figures
How to change the name of document elements like “Figure”, “Contents”, “Bibliography” etc.?

I'm using the book class in my document and I created an abstract using this piece of code:

\newenvironment{abstract}%
    {\cleardoublepage\thispagestyle{empty}\null\vfill\begin{center}%
    \bfseries\abstractname\end{center}
    {\vfill\null}

Now I would like to change \abstractname. I tried \renewcommand{\abstractname}{Name}, but it didn't work.
