2. Type It

Once you’ve clicked into the Name box, type in your page’s new name in the required fashion.

Make sure that your new name doesn’t break any of these Facebook naming rules and regulations:

These are the big NO-NO of names on Facebook

  • There should not be any use of any variation of “Facebook” in your name.
  • Do not include your company marketing slogan in your name.
  • There shouldn’t be any use of random capitalization that would make your elementary school teacher cringe!
  • Please be specific with your name.
  • Please be sure to not include any misleading terms or words.
  • Please be careful not to choose words that can be discriminatory, violating, or abusive. 
  • 3. Submit the Name
  • After creating the new name, tap Request Change. If you don’t see this option, cross-check to make sure that you’re listed as a page admin, because other roles don’t have that option.
  • If you’re an admin and you still don’t see the Request Change option, double-check to make sure you didn’t try to change the name within the past few days.
  • There is no limit to how many times you can change your page’s name, just so long as those changes are spaced about a week apart. Unlimited trials!

4. Be Patient

  • It doesn’t take Facebook very long to approve of a name change.
  • If there’s a delay, it would be better to check your Facebook page and make sure there’s nothing standing your way.

Once the person clicks the link to your page with your old name, they will be brought to your “new” page with the updated name.
