I have 3 iphones and a Macbook all on iCloud.  The phones all show up correctly named within the iCloud when using Find My iPhone but the laptop does not.  I back up all the iPhones to the same Macbook and iTunes account and know how to rename them thorough that.  How do I rename my Macbook?  It does not show up as my user name.


When I bought this Macbook, the Mac dealer moved all my data over from my old laptop to this one and I believe there is still a partition or something.  The name that shows up in iCloud is "Test's Macbook (2)."  I just want to see Macbook or My Macbook, Lara's Macbook, something along those lines.  Suggestions?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
