Just manually edit the first argument of the "menuentry" lines in
/boot/grub2/grub.cfg, which is the string that will be displayed in the
menu.  A typical line looks like this:

menuentry 'Fedora 19 (3.14.27-100.fc19.x86_64) (Hobgoblin00-RootF19)' --class 
gnu-linux --class gnu --class os $menuentry_id_option 

which displays:

    Fedora 19 (3.14.27-100.fc19.x86_64) (Hobgoblin00-RootF19)

Of course, (1) check your work carefully, (2) make a backup copy of
grub.cfg before editing it, and (3) have Knoppix or some other rescue
method available first.
