HOW TO: Change The Facebook Fan Page Name


Finally Facebook added a new feature for Fan page owners/admins. Now you have the ability to change the Facebook Fan Page Name, but unfortunately the fans should be below 100 and should not exceed it. This is a good news for Facebookers, since almost everyone has fan pages & now they can change misspelled Facebook fan page name.

Facebook made this limitation to prevent the buying and selling of fan pages. We already shared a tutorial for Changing Facebook Fanpage Vanity URL In Just 6 Steps.

Change Facebook Fan Page Name [The Steps]

#1 – Go to Manage Facebook Pages section.

Change FB Fan Page Name

#2 – Choose the page for which you want to change, and then select “Edit page”.

Tip : In case you have few more fans, you can delete some & go ahead.

Change Name

#3 – Choose “Basic Information” (Left Side) and change the name.

Appreciate Facebook for this feature, hope it would have helped several admins, if you are one amongst them, do share your opinions.

Update : This new feature is not available for all the users I guess. It will be fixed soon.

      I wish I could change the name of my blog page which has 900+ subscribers. But it’s impossible I think. Bad news.

    • Manish

      any option for 100+ likes page ??

    • Cebu Tech Blogger

      Sad to say FB is allowing this only to those pages with less than 100 fans. I myself badly needed to change the name of my page. Though it's already late when I realized what should have been the name of my page from the start. Anyway, this post is a way helpful for newly created pages.

      Nice tutorial, before if you make any mistake even typo you have to delete the page and make a brand new one. But this is a good news.
      Thanks for the share.

    • Reshab @Free Genuine Key

      thanks Pradeep, but still don’t understood why we use images from SML, Didn’t you use Facebook pages ?

    • Mrinmay Bhattacharjee

      Editing Facebook Page Name is not available for all types. Check the Screenshot here: – I am unable to edit my Page Name and that’s not acceptable at all ๐Ÿ™

    • Rohit | Ipod Touch 4G

      I am also not Getting changing NAME option in Basic Info tab……I also think that it is only available to those Pages who have less than 100 fans….. anyways it was a nice info..

    • Vinayak Nagri

      I have not got the feature yet :-/ That option is not shown in my blog’s fan page settings ๐Ÿ™

    • Sita

      Thanks a ton to facebook for bringing in this feature and lots more thanks to you for making me aware of the feature. I had created a new page yesterday and had to give up a page with 42 fans because of a notion that it is not possible to change page name. Now I can go back to the original page and keep my 42 fans.

    • Jaydip Parikh

      Even I wrote article on the same theme. Just add one point that you can change Fanpage name only if you have less then 100 fans. Check my post too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • sureshpeters

      its not working mate ๐Ÿ™ wen i do ur procedure i didn’t get the website name ๐Ÿ™ i cant able to change it

    • Irfan Siddiqui

      There is no “Name” in “Basic Information” then how can i change name of the fan page?

    • Ching Ya

      Yup, it is indeed a big step for facebook. Surely many who have longed for this option can jump up for joy now. However, unsure about the fan counts as a friend of mine who has 90+ fans is not given the ‘Name’ option. But still, it’s a good news for most accounts who are in need. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Really an informative blog. Thanks for the share.

    • www.ThePankajGupta.Com

      Yes now it become very easy. Earlier it was difficult I think. Thanks for sharing this information.

    • Lalit

      It shows this error “Our automated system will not allow that name”

      • S.Pradeep Kumar

        This is what Facebook says Lalit, “Only the official representative of a public figure, brand, or organization is permitted to create a Facebook Page. We do not allow Page title terms to prevent the creation of fake, unauthorized, or otherwise abusive Pages.

        If you aren’t the authorized representative and would like to create a space for fans of a certain topic or figure to share their thoughts and opinions, we suggest you create a Community Page or a Facebook Group.”

        And what is the username you tried!? ๐Ÿ˜€

        • Lalit

          Dude i tried to change the name for my blog fan page. Just added a description at the end. But it showed this error ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™

        • www.ThePankajGupta.Com

          Try using other name. They will not allow any words in the name of your fan page which can harm or related to any body else.

          • Lalit

            “Surf Your Interests” is the name of my blog, and there are no words which would harm someone. And i can not change the name because that is the name of my blog

            • sureshpeters

              hey mate try to add a short name ๐Ÿ™‚

            • Sita

              Hi Lalit,

              I had faced the issue while creating a page for one of my websites. Using all small letters helped me to solve the issue. Why don’t you try “Surf your interests”?
