How to rename mobile in car bluetooth display

Options
Hi all, I just bought a Ford Focus that has bluetooth and my son and I connected our 2 windows 8 phones without much trouble. But on the car display it shows both phones are named as Window phone. How can we personialise the name to say Dads phone and Sons phone (just for an example) so we can tell them apart.

I know this can be done because there were 5 other named phones from the previous owner in the setting when we got the car (its a 3 year old car) and we debonded them to cancel them from the display. So I know this is doable. I have read carfully the manual but this is renaming each phone is not mentioned.

I don't need a step by step explanation as I know to write these are time consuming just a push in the right dorection and I will enjoy trying to get it to work.......thanks in advance for any help offered.

PS: I will add this post to another forum section to see if I can hook an answer

    My Seat Leon picks up the name I gave to my iPhone as it does for my partner's iPhone. It doesn't have the means to edit a phone name.

    I suspect your Focus may work in the same manner, are both the phones in question called "Windows Phone" by default?

    In the iPhone, the name is set in the phone menu. For the benefit of iPhones users it's under Settings/General/About and can be freely edited.
