AFAIK you can't - why ever, they don't use the device name as configured on the router, instead they ue a hard-coded product designation.

Thank you @iimichaelv  ... there would be a lot of issues which should be reported and enhanced. This one I've tried to escalate several times already, no luck, unheard...

Or in MyNetgear, which is, after all, the "gateway" for remote control.

Well, even on the local connection, the device name as configured isn't used in the Nighthawk nor the Genie App - while it is used (finally, anfter a lot of pressure - for a long time it always showed R9000 hard coded here!) for the UPnP SSDP announcement, optionally for the ReadyShare (there is a prompt while renaimg to make it the same), ...
