    Hmm, looks completely different here, but this install is still 10.10. Never mind...

    On 10.10 you can change the host name in the Network setting on the general tab, as I remember.

    You can also set a temporary name with

    Code:
    hostname
    You can also change your prompt regardless of hostname with:

    Code:
    PS1="<desired name> : "
    There are many options to use with this for example:

    Code:
    PS1="\d \h $ "
    Would show the date and hostname.

    Some permanent changes to prompt may need to be set in bashrc
