I'd like to change the way that the dired buffers got their names.

For now it's juste the name of the directory, but I'd like to add
"<Dired>" as prefix for example.

Is it possible ?

It is not customizable by design, but it should be possible:

(defadvice dired-noselect (after rename-buffer activate)
  "Add <Dired> prefix to buffer name."
  (with-current-buffer ad-return-value
    (rename-buffer (concat "<Dired>" (buffer-name)))))
