    I have the situation: I need to change the name of my 3k fanpage.

    There was time, when the change of name was not possible, then it was possible - how it is these days - who is able to change it?

    Cheers!

    I recently encountered this problem as well.. The only way Facebook will allow it is if it's a "real" business, and you must submit proof to them that you own the business & what the new name change is (I believe you had to provide actual mail with the address & name on it.)

    Personally I just dropped my old page & started a new one with the new name.. Sucks though

    If the settings are the same as a Facebook business page, then try the following:

    Guide #1
    Try logging into your Facebook account, go to your fan page, click "settings", click "page info" in the vertical navigation bar, and then click on "Name". You should be able to change the name from there.

    Guide #2
    If your fan page has more than 200 likes, then go to settings, click on "page info", click on "name", click on "request change", and then send the name change request.

    Use a US Proxy and it appears. However, after I completed all the fields in the request form, I got an error... :confused:

    Sorry, I could only base the guides off of a Facebook business page since I only have a Facebook business page, which is why I said, "If the settings are the same as a Facebook business page", at the beginning. I have indeed changed my Facebook business page's name recently (2 weeks ago), although my Facebook business page has under 200 likes.

    Facebook also has instruction here on how to change your page's name: https://www.facebook.com/help/271607792873806
    Here's another "trick" for changing it, although I have not tried it myself: http://www.alltechbuzz.net/trick-change-facebook-fan-page-name-200-likes/

    If none of these isntructions work out for you, then let me know and I'll try to find other solutions. :)

    you can contact Facebook to change the name for you in case misspelling issue or you type it incorrectly , but will not change the name that give another meaning , because the fans liked for something how u can give them another ?

    i hope i can found way to merge 2 pages with different names and then change the name of the new page :)

    How? :eek: Both methods aren't working for me.

    First method: When I click to confirm the name change, it appears an error.
    Second method: The Translation option doesn't appear in the Settings...

    My guess is that he may have had a different type of Facebook page than you, or he had under 200 likes. If I'm correct, each Facebook page type (local business, public figure, entertainment, etcetera) comes with slightly different settings, so what works for him may not work for you.

    But for example... I tried to change the category (I think I tried them all), and the Translation option doesn't appear...
