How to Change Your Facebook Page Name 2019 – Do you have a Page on Facebook and want to change the page name? You might have been thinking about your new page name but when you’re trying to change it, you can’t. There are many reasons why you can’t change your Facebook page name.
Why can’t I change my Facebook page name?
You might think that Facebook has their own policies about changing page name, and that’s correct. These are some reasons why you can’t change your Facebook page name:
Your new page name is completely different from the current name
This is exactly what happened to me a few days ago. I used to have a fashion & lifestyle website and a page named Lifestyle Nowadays. As I moved on to this new website (Writer River), I also wanted to change my Facebook page name to Writer River, cause it already had 87 likes at that time (not bad).
So, I was trying to change the name from Lifestyle Nowadays to Writer River. The first attempt wasn’t succeeded. I got this notification:
I was figuring out what’s wrong with the new name. I even searched about this on Google but that didn’t help a lot. But, I was just getting a little bit information that it turns out, Facebook doesn’t allow users to change their page using a completely different name than the current name. Facebook thinks it’s irrelevant.
Your page has more than 200 likes
Changing Facebook page name is easy if your page hasn’t more than 200 likes. Facebook will directly approve any change. But if your Facebook has more than 200 likes, then you should be the Admin to be able to change the name.

Make sure to apply my secret trick while typing in the new page name. Also, follow this Facebook Page Naming Tips:
- Do use a name that represents what your page is about, and be specific about your name
- Don’t use any variation of “Facebook” word
- Don’t use “Official” word
- Don’t use any company slogan
- Don’t use words that can be violating, discriminatory, or abusive
Once you have typed in your new page name, click Continue to submit it so Facebook can review it.
According to my experience. I was only waiting for 5 minutes to get the notification from Facebook that my request was approved. If you don’t get the notification for an hour, be patient. Facebook will send you the notification. But if there’s a delay up to one day. Contact Facebook support and ask what’s the problem.

Up until this point, you have successfully changed your Facebook page name to new name + current name. Now let’s go to the next step: Delete the current name. Just so you know. You should wait up to 7 days to be able to change the page name again. When you change it, delete the old name and submit it. For example:
Current Name: Writer River Lifestyle Nowadays
So the name you should use: Writer River
And then submit it.
You will get the approval notification such as picture below.
