How to change or edit the name of a device in my Apple ID Account ?

I got a new computer that I Restored form the Time Machine of an old one that broke down which I do not have anymore.  The old one was a Mackbokk Air and that is how it was called in the devices list of my apple ID .  The new one is a Macbook Pro so I would like to change the name of the Device form Mackbook Air to Mackbook Pro.  In Manage my account, apple tells me to remove the computer entirely.  any way to just change the name ?

MacBook Pro with Retina display, New @ January 2018

Yes. But you'll need to do so from System Preferences->Sharing->Computer Name.


That's the name it uses for your devices list.
