What To Do If You Can't Change Your Facebook Name | Why Can't I Change My Facebook Name

What to do if you can't change your name on Facebook. I can't change my name on Facebook why? I want to change my name on Facebook. See how to...below;

Before you can change your name on Facebook, I recommend you click here to see the other names that are not allowed on Facebook and the ones that are not allowed. 

Doing that shall save you the stress of continuous rejection by Facebook if you used the list of names that are against the Facebook name standards.

Okay, having said that, without wasting much of our time, let me quickly show you in this post why you are not able to change your Facebook name to the one you wish to be identified with.

But, before we can proceed with that I guess it will be nice if I show us first the how to change our Facebook names on Facebook without stress.

Yesterday, a friend of mine called and asked me to explain to him how he can possibly go about a change of name to another one without having to create a new Facebook account.

See what I told him to do below;

How to change your name on Facebook: 

- Like I said earlier before you can proceed to change your Facebook name, first of all, review Facebook name standards

- Then when you're done with that, log into your Facebook profile and continue with the few instructions given below;

- Click in the top right of Facebook and select Settings

- Click Name

- Enter your name and click Review Change

- Enter your password and click Save Changes

NOTE: Keep in mind, you can only change your name every 60 days.

That is all the steps needed to change your name to another one on Facebook.

You mean that is all?


Then, how come I was not able to change my name?

If you follow the above procedure, and you cannot change your name, then see the possible things that may have prevented you from doing so.

Why Can't I Change My Facebook Name?

You may be having trouble changing your name if: 

- Your name doesn't follow Facebook name policy 

- You changed your name in the last 60 days, or you tried to change it too frequently 

- You were previously asked to confirm your name on Facebook 

- Your name doesn't exactly match the name that appears on something from our ID list
