How do you change printer names on the network?

We have three new Brother L2550DW printers for the three wards in our stake centre. They show up on the network when someone wants to print from their phone or tablet with exactly the same name so they do not know which printer to choose so they get the one for their ward. I would like to rename the printers on the network to eliminate this confusion. It is easy to change the printer name on the ward computer but how do you do this on the network?

These links may be helpful – it sounds like if you go to the printer's webpage, you should be able to change the name under "AirPrint" and also under "Web Services":

Thank you Samuel Bradshaw for posting those links. I followed the instructions on the first one and our printers are now renamed on the network.
