Facebook’s fine print on name changes
Facebook can reject your name change if it doesn’t follow Facebook’s naming policy. You are required to use your real name. You cannot use characters from various alphabets, a title (religious, professional, etc), or a word in place of a name. You may be limited in the number of times you can change names. If your name is not in good taste it could be amended or you may be blocked from the ability to change names yourself.
