I had a friend with this issue; he wanted to change his name on Facebook. Looking up the answer I thought this could be the excuse I need to get back to regular Bytes.
There is a “regular way” to simple submit a name change detailed on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/help/173909489329079
There’s also a way to add a secondary (think stage) name:
- Click Edit Profile.
- Click Details About You.
- Click Add a nickname, a birth name… below Other Names.
- Select the type of name you want to add next to Name Type.
- Enter your other name.
- Check Show at top of profile to have your other name shown next to your full name at the top of your profile.
- Click Save.
Hope that helps! Ann
