Of course !

But sorry to announce you that it is not possible, because
even if you do a 

  cvs tag -b -r current-branch-tag-name alias-branch-tag-name
what you'll get is another branch.
Even renaming a branch tag is not possible. (without losing the
branch history)

You'll have to live with the current branch name. And it's why
having a naming convention for tags is really helpfull.
