change arduino name (usbmodem441)

I am trying to make a combo of hardware and software, and I would like to change de name of the arduino when connected to a computer, something I can know in advance, not random, so that my software can connect to the device no matter in which computer it is connected! Is there any way to change the name from tty.usbmodem441 (assigned by my computer) to something like tty.mydevice?

Thanks

You could create a symbolic link, but that would only work on your computer.

There's no way for the Arduino itself to control what name the computer assigned it.
