I guess that the way to go about it would be to use the cloudinit integration.
I've not tried it myself, but:
states that setting the hostname was one of the planned features when the
integration was designed.
Setting the host name via cloud-init is currently
supported - you can set it
via the Add/Edit VM via the "Initial Run" section or try to run-once the VM
and look at the same "initial Run" section.
Please note that if you do Edit a VM that already run ie already initialized
oVirt engine will not send the cloud-init data, you will need to use run-once
What you reported looks like a bug - the VM name should be the hostname and
not the template name.
Care to report the bug on bugzilla?
