Re: change device name ?
I'm going to quote another post of mine, which can be found here.
You'll need to enable Developer Options on the tablets, but after doing so, use the following setting.
Settings > Developer Options > Device hostname
This will allow you to change, obviously, the hostname that the tablet uses. You'll want to reboot the tablet to ensure it refreshes properly on the network side. However, not every device may have this option. If you don't see it after enabling Developer Options, use the following method, though it will require root access. You should be able to unroot without having the hostname reset, but don't quote me on that. I'd give it a try with the first tablet to see whether or not it will work.
Install a terminal emulator on the tablet. Enter the following:
> su > getprop net.hostname > setprop net.hostname <new_hostname>If you had Google Glass, what's one thing you'd really want to use it for?
Softbricking be damned.

Re: change device name ?
I don't know if you already worked this out, but this is how it worked for me. I am using Android 4.1.2
- To edit the device name you will need to do it under WiFi settings,
- you will have to enable it first. Go to your device’s Settings panel and tap on the toggle slider to enable Wi-Fi
- Next, tap on the “Wi-Fi” text to see the configuration screen.,
- Tap on “Wi-Fi Direct” button on the bottom (for Samsung devices, I did it on a Sumsung Grand Duos), or launch options menu to see the “Wi-Fi Direct” option (for AOSP) and then tap on it.
- Now tap on the menu button/icon to see the “Rename Phone” or “Rename Device” option.
- Type in the preferred name in the text box and select OK to save it. Done!
