Renaming the wp-admin or something similar is not really an option due to the way WordPress is coded. However, there are ways to make it a bit harder to access.
First, you can password protect the wp-admin directory. To do so, simply follow the instructions below:

Also, access to the login area can gained by visiting example.com/wp-login.php. This bypasses the wp-admin, so yo may want to prevent access to that file as well. Since it is located in the main area for your wordpress, password protecting that directory is not an option unless you want to password the entire site. You can, however, password protect that single file by using the .htaccess file. Below is an article on how to do that as well.
