Renaming a Hyper-V Replica?

Is it safe to rename a Hyper-V replica?  By default it is replicated with the same name and I want to change it to something like "original name - DO NOT USE".  Will this effect replication or fail-over?

Thanks in advance.

Virtual Machines are replicated using Virtual Machine GUID and not by VMs' name. So it is safe to rename a Virtual Machine but only after the replication is started and fully synchronized the VMs.
