You can set the rootName and rootNamespace in the following constructors: NetDataContractSerializer.NetDataContractSerializer(String, String), NetDataContractSerializer.NetDataContractSerializer(XmlDictionaryString, XmlDictionaryString), and NetDataContractSerializer.NetDataContractSerializer(XmlDictionaryString, XmlDictionaryString, StreamingContext, Int32, Boolean, FormatterAssemblyStyle, ISurrogateSelector).
