Openstack Hyper-V instance/VM Name

Upon launching an instance through OpenStack on a Hyper-V host, the VM is name "instance-00000xx"--is there a way to have the prefix "instance" replaced with something else on a per-launch basis, particularly using the metadata when launching the instance? For example, if I launch 5 instances of a special Windows 7 build, I would like the VM names in Hyper-V to be similar to "Special-00000xx"

Also, is there a way to configure VM attributes like Hyper-V integration services or CD drive options at the launch of an instance?
