iPad Name Keeps Changing
I noticed a while back that the name of my iPad somehow became "Unknown Host". So I changed it in General > Settings to iPad. Didn't think anything else about it for the most part. On one occasion, I checked back in and found the name to be iPad (2). Today I noticed it was iPad (4). What in the world is going on? I've looked everywhere I can think of--associated with my AppleID, iCloud ID, and backup listings--and can find no reason why the name keeps changing. Any ideas?

Re: iPad Name Keeps Changing
My iPhone became "iPhone 2" after I restored it as new. I changed it back to the name I had given it, and it has stayed that way since. But it appears many are seeing the name switch. It made sense after restoring as new, but the others don't.
