Two Methods:On MobileOn DesktopCommunity Q&A
This wikiHow teaches you how to change your displayed name on Facebook, both in the mobile app and on the desktop site. Exercise caution when doing this, since Facebook will only allow you to change your name a few times.

Open Facebook. It's a dark-blue app with a white "f" on it. This will open your Facebook News Feed if you're already logged into Facebook on your phone or tablet.
If you aren't logged into Facebook, enter your email address (or phone number) and password to continue.
Tap ☰. It's in either the bottom-right corner of the screen (iPhone) or the top-right corner of the screen (Android).

Scroll down and tap Settings. It's near the bottom of the page.
Skip this step on Android.
Tap Account Settings. This option will take you to your Account Settings page.


Edit your name. Tap the First Name, Middle Name, or Last Namefield, type in your preferred name, and repeat for the other fields as necessary.
Select a display option. Facebook will display variations of your name at the top of the screen; tap an option to select it as your name's appearance.
Enter your password, then tap Save Changes. You'll enter your password in the text field above the Save Changes button. Doing so will change your Facebook name.

Go to Facebook's website. Go to https://www.facebook.com in your preferred browser. This will load your News Feed if you're already logged into Facebook.
If you aren't already logged into Facebook, enter your email address (or phone number) and password before continuing.

If that happened, your account is probably hacked by someone who also now has access to your messages, images and other personal info. That 'unknown' has your password. You should change your change your password before that 'unknown' changes it himself and causes you more trouble.

If you change your name, all your old material that's everywhere else (old tagging, etc.) will have your old name.

Question
Will people know me with the new last name and will I still have my games?
Community Answer
Not sure about the games, but there are a few ways to keep your maiden name while adding your new last name to your current profile.

You would need to know the answer to your security questions. Another option is if you have your phone number on your account you could access it on your phone with your phone number. Also you could try just using your old email (the one you set up the account with) and your current password, which may still work.

How do I erase my maiden name that is displayed with my real name? It is not exactly a name change. I simply want to erase some info attached. Thanks!
