I'm trying to remove some tabs and change the navigations title : enter image description here

As you can see above navigation How to remove some navigation and change the title ? For example removing Address Book change NewsLetter Subscriptons to Subscription

I was looking for the css file nav items and found this :

 * Copyright © 2013-2017 Magento, Inc. All rights reserved.
 * See COPYING.txt for license details.
/** @var $block \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Html\Links */
<?php /** @var $block \Magento\Customer\Block\Account\Navigation */ ?>
<div class="block account-nav">
    <div class="title">
        <strong><?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo __('My Account'); ?></strong>
    <div class="content">
        <nav class="account-nav">
            <ul class="nav items">
                <?php echo $block->getChildHtml();?>

From here I was looking for the \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Html\Links but kinda stuck and have no idea what to do.

I'm new to magento 2 so kinda noob here.
