Facebook Name Change
Facebook allows you to easily change names. You can include a nickname or maiden name too. Be sure you get the name right before submitting as you will be prevented from making any amendments for the 60 days following.
- Click the drop down menu at the top right (it looks like a down pointing triangle). From here, select ‘settings.’
- From general settings, the first option is to edit your name. If you can’t see your name listed along with the ‘edit’ link, click ‘General’ from the menu list on the left.
- Click the edit link alongside your name, type in your new name then click save.
Facebook's fine print on name changing
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, and if your name is not in good taste it can amended and you will be blocked from the ability to change names yourself.
