Way to set "computer name" to MSN

When I use Pidgin to log onto MSN (with the newer versions of Pidgin
that support multiple MSN logins), and I log onto MSN with Windows
Live Messenger, I can see the various places I'm logged in from (and
options to sign them off): I see MYWINDOWS-PC (or whatever the
hostname of my computer is) for the Windows Live Messenger login; and
I see "Pidgin" for the Pidgin login.

My question is, is it possible to customize the string that Pidgin
shows, to something other than "Pidgin".
