Is there an easy way to change the name of a Bluetooth device?

Let’s say for example that you have a Bluetooth device and it has the hard-coded name Sony Bluetooth Device. Is there a way to change it to Device123 so that every other PC “sees” the device as Device123 instead of the old name?

For example, you can rename devices with Windows, but the new name appears only on the PC that you used to rename the device which doesn’t help.
