If you want to change or edit your Google account name, you have come to the right place. In this article, we will show how to change the Google account name through your Computer, Android Phone, Tablet, iPhone & iPad.
Note that, you can change your Google account name, but it is not possible to change your user ID or email ID of your Gmail address. For example, if your name in Google is ‘Dr. R. Sharma’ and Gmail address is ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’, you can change the name ‘Dr. R. Sharma’ to anything you like but it would not be possible to change your Gmail ID ‘email@example.com’.
Once you change your display name in Google account, your name will be reflected everywhere including in Gmail, YouTube, and other Google products.
Important Note: If you created your Google account more than two weeks ago, you would not be able to change your Google account name more than three times within 90 days, but if you created your account less than two weeks ago, you could change your name more often.
