I found how to change device name for Bluetooth and Ethernet (separate settings).

Is there a way to change device name from XT1053 (or whatever you model is) to something else when device is connected to USB?

Disregard the post below - this is for network host name (what will appear in your WiFi router).

Executing this in terminal window:

> su
> getprop net.hostname
> setprop net.hostname <new_hostname>

only works until the reboot.

I found this solution: but haven't tried that yet.
