In ARD run a unix task on the computers you want to rename. Select the bubble for the user and say root. The command you want to run is all that is in the block quote below.

#!/bin/bash

/usr/bin/osascript << EOF
property compName : ""

repeat while compName is ""
tell application "Finder"
activate
display dialog "What should this computer be named:" default answer compName
set compName to text returned of result
end tell
end repeat

try
do shell script "hostname " & quoted form of compName
on error errorMsg number errorNum
display alert "Error " & errorNum message errorMsg buttons "Cancel" default button 1
end try
EOF

name=$(hostname)
scutil --set ComputerName "${name}"
scutil --set LocalHostName "${name}"

Life Changes 
10/16/2014 - Becca, Shawn, Both
Posted by Shawn
So recently as the title implies my life has gone through some changes and pretty big ones at that. I have a new job in the field of my choice (Information Technology). I am now happily employed by PVUSD as a Technology Specialist III. I get the great opportunity to support and manage nine schools throughout the week. I deal a wide variety of systems and people. I do a lot of work on Macs and Mac servers with a few Windows servers round about. I am enjoying every moment of it and learning lots from it. I get the awesome pleasure of coming to the rescue of teachers in distress so they can teach students to the best of their ability with the best resources we can provide.

The next big change in my life is that my wife and I rescued a dog. We rescued a Chihuahua mix, we don't know what she is mixed with but she is very much a lover and loves to play just as much as she wants to lick us to death. She always greets us at the door when we come home. We have named her Prim but right now she is far from prim and proper but we spend much time with her getting her ever more closer.
