Take the administrative privileges away from the user account. If they are an administrator, they are going to be able to change the name. However limited and power users cannot change the computer name.

My name is JRComp, and I approve this message.

By design all members of the administrators group have full control of the computer, including changing it's name. Unless the computer is a member of a domain you cannot restrict a local administrator's rights. Any attempt to do so can be evaded.

The only way to do what you want is to remove the users from the administrators group.
