Device names on map

What determines the shortened name that devices are given on the map? Is there a way of setting this manually?

The value for name in known_devices.yaml. You can edit this file manually.

I’m looking for the shortened name.

What shortened name? When I look at device_tracker entities on the map I only see names from known_devices.yaml, both when I hover the cursor over them and when I click on them.

Or are you talking about the representation of person entities?
