Are you an individual who is recently married and taken on the last name of your spouse, or a business that has recently changed your business name after going through a rebrand? Whatever the reason is that’s prompting you to change your Facebook page name, we’re here to guide you through how to do it.

Changing your Facebook page name as a business

  1. Log in to your Facebook account and navigate to the top right-hand corner of the page where the small south-facing arrow is located.
  2. Click on “manage pages” in the dropdown menu, and click on the account that you would like to edit.
  3. Once you are on the page of the appropriate account, click on “about” on the left side of the page.
  4. Once you click this, a box with the headline “general” will appear to the right, where information such as “category,” “name” and “username” are housed.
  5. Click on the “edit” button next to name, and make any edits to your name.
  6. Confirm the new name for your page.
  7. Now it’s time to wait. Facebook will review your page name change and notify you when it is approved.

Some things to note

  • Ensure that you are changing the name of your page to a name that accurately represents what the page is about. Facebook might detect unrelated names as being misrepresentative or fraudulent accounts.
  • Make sure that your new name abides by Facebook’s page name rules.
