    The android phone does provide you the option to change the name by which the phone appears while going for Bluetooth connectivity. You need to first tap on applications from the home screen. Then you need to tap on the option called Settings. In setting you will be able to find the option called Wireless and networks. Here you need to select the option called Bluetooth settings. Here you can switch Bluetooth ON or OFF. You can also change the device name and discoverability.

    Hello Guest,
    For doing this you should point to Settings in the main menu. Then select Wireless and Networks> Bluetooth. You will see an option of "bluetooth name" there. So just rename it and you are done. Thank You... :-)
