I got the new Kindle Fire HD 7" for my daughter. On the upper left corner of the home screen, it has my full name from my Amazon account. My daughter wants it to show her name, so I went in to manage devices and changed it to show "Jen's Fire". The home screen still shows my full name (none of my other Kindle's have shown my full name). She's shut it off and turned it back on and it still hasn't changed. Is this something different for this model, that shows who the device is registered to, rather than their "device name" or is there something else that I can do to change it?

Mine said 3rd kindle on the Amazon site, but on the actual kindle screen, it listed my full name. I changed the Amazon site to "Jen's Fire", but haven't checked the actual device today to see if anything changed overnight.

You should be able to show a unique name of your choosing by changing it on the Manage your device page. I just checked mine and it says Daddy Nanny like it is suppose to. If this is not working I would check with Customer Support and see what the problem is.
