I misspelled the name of a box when I added it to my box list:
vagrant box list debian ubnutu
Can I rename the box without repackaging it?

You can simply rename the dir that represents the box. If your vagrant files are in their default dir (i.e. /path/to/your/home/.vagrant.d) you can just do:
mv vagrant_path/boxes/box_to_rename vagrant_path/boxes/new_box_name
Also be sure to change the Vagrantfile to use the new label for the box. You just need to change the
config.vm.box directive to reflect the changes.
I would do this:
$ vagrant box repackage misspelled-name [vagrant] Compressing package to: /Users/johndoe/package.box $ vagrant box add correct-name /Users/johndoe/package.box ...
