Keeping my old Mac on my network

I have ordered a new 24" iMac which is due to be delivered in the middle of next month. But there's a good chance I will still need my old 27" iMac for a while so that I can boot to Mojave to run a program that is due to be 64 bits "sometime this Spring".

I'm thinking that if this is the case, I will want to connect my backup to the new computer and migrate from there, and while I'm doing that go to my old computer go to "System Preferences/Sharing/Computer Name/Edit" and change its name.

I don't want two different computers with the same name on my network.

Are there any other concerns I should be aware of for this setup?
