I recently upgraded to Yosemite and following that upgraded to an SSD drive. Life is good and I am happy with everything except that since the upgrades I am seeing a silly variety of names for my computer.
I renamed it to The Shire and now it shows up as The Shire(2) or The Shire(3). No matter how many times I change it back in Preferences > Sharing, it keeps adding all those extra numbers. There are times when I see four or five different iterations of my system - see attached image.
To add insult to injury, the old name of my system, the generic MacBook Pro (5) also shows in the list.
From what I have read this may have something to do with Bonjour, but I have not see any solutions out there for restoring order and correct names to list.
Sage advice is welcome.
