To remove the column name label from pie charts in Matplotlib we can set the y-axis label to not be visible.

# Example

Consider the following DataFrame:

``` import pandas as pddf = pd.DataFrame({"A":[3,4], "B":[5,6]})df A B0 3 51 4 6 ```

To plot column `A` from the above DataFrame as a pie chart:

``` df['A'].value_counts().plot(kind='pie', title='Pie Plot') ```

This produces the following:

Notice how by default the column name label `A` appears as the y-axis label.

To not display the y-axis label:

``` ax = df['A'].value_counts().plot(kind='pie', title='Pie Plot')ax.yaxis.set_visible(False) ```

This produces the desired result without the column name y-axis label:
