Rename MacBook Pro?

I imported all my settings when I set up my MacBook Pro. Can I change the name?

dont change your home folder name! you can change your hard drive's name and your computer's name as it appears to shared devices. you can change the latter in the sharing pane in system preferences

Thank you - I'm kind of embarrassed. Before I got my Powerbook replaced I hadn't used Mac in a while. Since I have a Macbook Pro, I'm using it more and had a huge brain fart. Apple makes things easier - natural - and Windows doesn't do as good a job in this department. I was looking and googling how to do this and couldn't find it.
