Can I change the host name so it's easier to see my Nest from my router?

 quinnrj New Nester

When I log into my router, it lists my nest's hostname as its MAC address in the list of DHCP addresses assigned. Can I change the hostname in the Nest so it's easier to find my Nest on my router? I have enough devices on my network that I find it useful to know what's what without looking up MAC addresses.

 

FYI: I tried to change name that the router calls my Nest, but I cannot (it's a Trendnet TEW-731BR).

 

Thanks for your 2 cents.
