Jim,

Kristoffer is correct that you should look into Sysprep. Specifically,
Sysprep has an option to automatically generate a computer name when the
clone first boots.

If you're looking for a fancier solution, it should be possible to have
Sysprep launch a script on first boot which would query the instance
metadata for the local-hostname, change the computer name, and then reboot.
