How to Change Your Name on Facebook

Written by Amit Agarwal on Jan 26, 2011

You may want to change your name on Facebook for several reasons. For instance, you got married recently and thus your last name (surname) changed. Or you have been using your nickname on Facebook till now and would now like to update it with your real name.

In either case, here’s what you need to do to get your name changed on Facebook.

1. Go to Facebook – > Account – > Account Settings.

2. Click “change” under the name heading and update your name. You may also add an alternate name (like your nickname) if more people know you by that name.

However, please note that Facebook will manually verify your name changing request before updating the one mentioned in your profile.
