When you have multiple Amazon devices at home, it’s a good idea to keep them in order. Switching between multiple Fire TVs or Fire TV Sticks can be frustrating if they are all assigned the same default names

Fortunately, this shouldn’t be the case. You can easily change the name of any Amazon device by accessing your online Amazon account, making your smart home environment simple and easy to navigate.

This article explains how to change the name of your Fire TV and Firestick in a few easy steps.

Change your Fire TV Stick name through the official website

You can change the name of the Fire TV Stick by selecting the settings on the Amazon official website. Before doing this, you must first check the name of the device you want to change. Also, make sure you know your Amazon credentials before proceeding.

Step 1: Check your device name

Amazon assigns random names to each Fire TV Stick. Hence, it can get a little confusing the more devices you have. Therefore, you need to know the exact name of your device before you decide to change it. Especially if you have a bunch of different devices and want to rename them all.

For example, if you want to change the name of your bedroom Fire TV Stick to “Bedroom”, you must know the current name of the device located in the bedroom.

To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Fire TV Stick app.
  2. Go to “Settings”.

  3. Navigate to “My Fire TV” on the right.

  4. Go to “Fire TV Stick 4K”

  5. Note the assigned name in the “Device Name” section.

You have to do this with each other Amazon Fire TV Stick that you have in your house. Once you’ve written down the default device names, it’s time to visit Amazon’s website.

Step 2: Access your Amazon account

The only real way to change the Fire TV Stick’s name is on the Amazon website. But first, you need to sign in to your Amazon account.

  1. Go to Amazon’s official website.
  2. Select the “Hello Login” menu in the top right corner of the page.

  3. Enter an email address in the dialog box.
  4. Click Continue.
  5. Enter your password when prompted.
  6. Click Login.

If you have multiple Amazon accounts, make sure you sign in to the one associated with your home devices. Otherwise, you won’t be able to find your desired Fire TV Stick in the list.

Now that you’ve signed in to your account, it’s time to change the names.

Step 3Change Device Names

To change the names, you must return to Amazon’s First Home Page. Then follow these steps:

  1. Scroll down to the bottom of the page.
  2. Click “Manage content and devices” under “Let us help you”.
    manage your content and devices
  3. Click on the “Your Devices” tab to open a list of all available Amazon devices.
    your devices
  4. Find the device you want to rename and click on it. A new menu will appear under the selected device.
  5. Click the small Edit button next to the device name.
  6. Choose a new name for the device.
    edit device information
  7. Click Save.

This will change the name of your device. So the next time you use the Fire TV Stick remote, you’ll know exactly which device you need to choose.

You can follow the same method above to change the name of any Amazon device. It doesn’t have to be a Fire TV or Fire TV Stick, you can also change the name of your Kindle, for example.

Change the name of the Fire TV Stick on your phone

If you have a smartphone with the Amazon app, you can use it to change the name of your Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. Do the following:

  1. Open ‘Amazon’ on your smartphone.
  2. Click the “Hamburger” button in the upper left corner of the screen (three horizontal lines).
  3. Select “Your Account” from the drop-down menu.
  4. Click Content and Devices.
  5. Click on Devices.
  6. Select the Fire TV / or Fire Stick device you want to rename.
  7. Click Edit and a new screen will appear.
  8. Choose a new name.
  9. Click “Save” and you will see a message that your device name has been changed successfully.

Choosing the right name

If you decide to change the name of your Amazon Fire TV Stick, make sure you rename it to something you can associate with that specific device. If you have multiple devices at home, it’s best to name them according to the rooms they’re in rather than arbitrary names.

However, the last word is always yours. If you are not satisfied with some of the names assigned to you, you can always follow the above steps and rename the devices again.
