I have two iMacs (one at home, the other in the office), an iPhone and a new iPad mini.

 

It is confusing to see the identical names of my two iMacs when I search on FIND MY iPHONE. 

 

Is there any way to rename any or all of the devices to something that makes more sense?

 

Thanks in advance.

    Of course. What you see in Find my iPhone is the Mac's name. You can change the Mac's name in System Preferences > Sharing, so the name of your Mac will change.

     

    If you want to change the name of your iPad or iPhone, open Settings > General > About, where you will be able to change their name
