    How to change profile name on Facebook?


    Do you want to know how to change profile name on Facebook. just go through this thread.

    I have opened a Facebook account in 2009 and gave only the nick name as a profile name. Now after I got engaged in other social networking sites with forums and articles, therefore I want to add a social profile status with my original name. I tried to change my nick name of profile in Facebook but could edit the same. Only that column is blocked for editing. Is there any way to change the profile name on Facebook now?

  • It is very easy to change your profile name. Just goto account settings option. In that page you can edit or change your profile name, user name, password. Atlast you need to enter your password to save your settings. Thats it, now your profile name is changed.

  • It is very easy to change your profile name or add an alternate name to your account. To edit your name you have to click in the upper-right corner of any Facebook page and select account settings, then click on general column. Then look for name settings and click edit. Then type your new name and save. when this is not working you can go to help option in log in page and ask experts help.

  • To change your Profile Name and Display name in Facebook just click the wheel at right hand top corner, select Account settings, Edit the name section. You will get a screen to change the First Name, Middle Name and Last Name, Display name (drop down with options of name first and surname first). On this screen you will also find the option to enter the Alternate name. After entering the changes you can save the changes by entering your Facebook password.

  • It can be done very easily in the upper-right corner of any Facebook page.

    At first go to the account settings option in your Facebook account.

    Here you will select account settings.

    You will go to general setting column.

    Here you will find options to edit or change your profile name, user name and your password.

    Here you will see the name setting button. You can Select it and edit it.

    After editing what you want to change at last you should not forget to save the changes by entering your Facebook password
