How to Change Your Facebook Page Name

How to Change Your Facebook Page NameI recently changed the name of my Facebook page from Diana Stone – Hormonal Imbalances Blog to Diana Wrote. It was an easy process, but there were a few things along the way that Facebook decided to make a bit – confusing.

So after several of you asked how to do this, I decided that it was easier to explain with screenshots and a step by step. You can click to enlarge any of these screenshots.

First, click over to your FB page. Not your personal – the one for your blog/business/site. Click Edit Page, then Update Page Info.

You’ll be taken to a screen that looks like this below. Click Edit to the right of your current page name.

Click on Request Change.

You’ll see a form where you can request a name change. This is where it gets a little complicated. But hang in there. Start to read and accept each of the terms Facebook has for name changes.

Leave current name alone, fill in your new page name in the “Desired” spot. Make sure it follows the rules that you read. If you don’t see the reason for your change in the drop down, click other.

Below is where I almost quit. As a blogger, I have nothing showing the address of my business – and I wasn’t going to send them a personal bill or something like that. So? I just skipped it. I figured if they needed it, they’d let me know. It does say “to expedite” and I didn’t need it changed in a hurry.

That’s it! Click to send. I received a response a few days later letting me know that it would require a 14 day waiting period.

And sure enough, today I logged in to find my FB page name changed! Note: this does not change the url, which was fine with me because that would be a mess if it didn’t redirect to the new one.

  1. You are amazing, thank you for this! I have tried to change my name in the past but couldn’t because I had over 100 fans. I changed my blog name years ago and hate that my FB page is different. Thank you!

  2. I’ve been wanting to do this- to add my name to my blog name. I went in to try and because I have more than 400 likes it wouldn’t let me. So I gave up. But now I think I may go back in and just do it! Thanks for the instructions! :)

  3. Thanks so much for this Diana! I stopped at the very step you stopped on when I tried this before and I’m glad you can still change your name even without that proof! :)

  4. Thank you for this!!

  5. Just wanted to say it worked! I submitted my change request the night you posted this and they just emailed me to say it’s been changed :) Thank you again! xoxo

  6. doesnt work for pages with over 200 likes these days :(

  7. For some reason, it won’t let me skip the “Upload” documentation part! :-(

  8. I from filled out. But Facebook didn’t send message.

  9. I have been trying and trying to get to the Update Page Info screen and it JUST WON’T GO THERE. I click it and it does NOTHING. I reported the problem to FB, but who knows if they’ll pay attention. I may have to start a new page. :-(
