    I cannot change my FB account name anymore, because it says it has been changed too many times (in fact it was, probably during my college/coming-home-drunk years). The fact is, I've become bored and fed-up with this online peephole and I want to annihilate my true social media presence.

    So question is - how do I persuade FB to allow my one and final FB name change?

    You just go and delete you facebook account.
    I am not speaking to deactivate it, I am telling you to delete it.
    Like this you will lose everything that your FB profile had before, and after 14days even the email address will be free to reopen a new FB account.
    Here is the link to permanently delete your account:

    The only way to persuade them is if there is FB staff here who is compassionate to your plea otherwise make a new one.

    You don't have to delete the old one, someday the rule might change or leniency can take cause.

    Deleting the account is not a good advice.


    OP, open a thread in their support forums. Someone working in FB will surely help you.

    So just delete it. Permanently. Use the link above. I was gonna link but HerBar beat me to it ;).

    OR

    You can go into their forums and get a staff member to help you. Make sure you come up with a really good reason for a name change though. Good luck man!

    I don't really plan on deleting it, because FB became like the main communication tool (before that ICQ did the job, but that's like half a century ago) and I still want to stay in touch with other people (but NOT by posting anything private from my life like everyone else loves to do! Just pure chat and events.).

    So I think I'm going to give those forums a shot...

    Changing Facebook names has limits. I'm not sure if they will allow you to change your name if you have reach the limits.
    I have seen this on the web: answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110904110012AAOhYdl might help.
