How to Change Facebook Profile Name after Name Limits Reached.

Your Facebook Account Name limit is Reached or Exceeded?

So do you want to change your Facebook Profile Name after Name Limit reach? 😉

If so, just follow the simple method written below,

Mostly many people don’t know that facebook keeps some limits for Pages, Profiles, Groups, Friends, Events etc. Just like we can’t change a facebook profile name after 5 times, we can’t change our profile username more than 1 time, we can’t change a facebook page name after 200 Likes, we can’t change a facebook group name after reaching 250 members, we can’t add more than 5000 friends to our facebook profile and it is not possible to change the name of an event if it has more than 5000 people invited.


Nowadays, I’ve seen many keeping their facebook profile names in Different stylishFonts like ȼɦǿȼLąty Þrîñçé, Nitesh Iı’e Belııve’ııŋ Mąh-self, Іі’є-єм Ѕэжҷ’Айԁ Її’ Ќйѳщ’Їт, Маиѳг Кнцмая etc. But facebook is banning the accounts who are using those type of stylish fonts, fake names.

Also, make sure that your name can’t include:

  • Titles of any kind (ex: professional, religious, etc)
  • Symbols, repeating characters or punctuation, unusual capitalization, and numbers
  • Words, phrases, or nicknames in the place of a middle name
  • Offensive or suggestive content of any kind
  • Characters from multiple languages

As per facebook rules, the profile name which you use should be your real name as it would be listed on your credit card, student ID, govt-issued proof etc. So I personally suggest everyone to keep your facebook account with a real name(without any fonts or special characters).

So if your profile name limit is exceeded and want to change your facebook profile name to real name, then click the below button,


Change My Facebook Profile Name




Change Facebook Profile Name after Name Limits Reached



Fill that form and you have to upload your valid Government-issued Proof – photo ID like a Passport or Driver’s license etc and when your upload finishes, finally click “Send” button.

Any 1 Proof will be enough in the list of below examples,

  • Green card, residence permit or immigration papers
  • Birth certificate
  • Personal or vehicle insurance card
  • Marriage certificate
  • Official name change paperwork
  • Voter ID card
  • Nondriver’s government ID (ex. disability, SNAP or national ID card)

Note: If you don’t have a government-issued Proof-photo ID, you can submit copies of any 2 other documents that hat together show your full name, birthday, and picture. Any 2 Proofs will be needed in the list of below examples,


  • Credit card
  • Utility bill
  • School or work ID
  • Library card
  • Check
  • Bus card

For more information about the submission of proofs, check the facebook help center page by Clicking Here.

So when you submit your proofs, facebook staff will verify it and they will change your name to the real name as which was listed on the proofs that you submit. This whole process may take 4-5 days or 6-7 days like that. But we can’t say any exact prediction that they will change our name within the specific time. Mostly it will take 4-7 days.

My Personal Experience: Earlier I faced this problem and facebook asked me to submit any valid proof and I submitted my College ID card picture by taking a snap from my mobile. Facebook staff verified it and changed my name within 4-5 days. So I suggest you to take a clear picture of your proof either by scanning or by capturing from a good camera or mobile.

  • Anonymous says:

    I am admin for a charity page which has not ‘used their one time username/URL name change’ chance yet since first setting up the page. So why when I click ‘edit’ is there no option offered or box to type in as there is with other pages I manage. I have submitted ID a week ago for the Page name change and all was accepted well. Is there anywhere to contact with FB to tell them that there is a en error somewhere if we haven’t used our ‘1 time’ chance but still are not allowed to change the username?

    Thanks in advance for your help / advice.

    • Avinash S says:

      There are no such facilities to inform them about these kinds of issues. But you can send your message by submitting the ID proofs.

  • Shankar says:

    I have changed my “FB page URL” twice but the second time i have entered a lil error, just a character to be removed. How can i reach out to FB to let them know this or how can i change it myself. Any way out?

    • Avinash S says:

      In help center, there is a form to submit these kinds of issues, but I guess, they’ll ask you proofs to that page to change the url.

      • Shankar says:

        Can you take a moment more and point to that help centre link?? I couldn’t find one where i can submit my request….

  • sylvia says:

    hi! i submitted the form to change my name but i didn’t receive any emails or reply from them. what does that mean? should i receive an email from the immediately once i submitted the form?

    • Avinash S says:

      No, sometimes it will take late. Just wait for 2-3 days.

  • Hello. my friends facebook password was hac*ed and his name was changed to another. now he can't change his name for 60 days and hi deactiwaited his account because of name! facebook can u help us to change my friends account name please?
    i tried to do this

    but when i go to this link (https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/245617802141709?rdrhc) to upload my ID card it shows me tthis…

    "Why do I have to wait to change my name?

    You can't change your name right now because you've changed it too recently. After 60 days, you'll be able to change your name again.

    Facebook is a community where people use their authentic identities. We limit how often people can change their name, so you always know who you're connecting with. This helps keep our community safe.

    If you'd like to list a second name on your account (ex: maiden name, nickname, professional name), you can add another name to your profile."

  • Hello guy, Now I will try to inform you about “how to change Facebook user name before 60 days”. Everyone have a question in mind that, ” Can I change my name on facebook before 60 days ” or ” I want to change my fb name before 60 days “. It is easy to change Facebook name before 60 days. ……………………..
