    Where do you want to see the change in your device name? Are you referring to the device list in the Google Play Store website?

Log in to the web interface of the Play Store and click the settings button in the top right corner and select My Orders and Settings (or use this direct link). Next, select the Settings tab and you'll see your devices. From here, just click on Edit and type the name you wish to give the device and click Update.
