    What in the world is going on here? About a month ago I changed one of my page names that had 50,000 likes, I had legal documentation and etc... They changed the name with no problem.

    But now I want to change the name of one of my other pages that has 40,000 likes and there is no option for it anymore.

    https://www.facebook.com/help/community/question/?id=10152228034350500

    In this forum there is a guy asking about changing his page name, and Andy Elliotte from facebook responded back saying you cannot change a facebook page name anymore and he said that 6 MONTHS AGO... How is that possible if I just changed my facebook page name a month ago which had over 50,000 likes?

    There used to be an option where one could go to the HELP tab, and there used to be an option under which said "Request for a page name change"

    Maybe facebook disallowed this option for me only... can you guys please check your pages and see if you have this option...

    If the page goes over 35 likes I think, you can't change the name anymore

    You can't currently change the name of a Page with 200 or more likes.

    Why? Because it prevents people from selling the pages or doing bait n' switches on people.

    Lol. Think about it, You see a funny post with a funny meme, you like the page that's called "Cute and Funny Memes" , next thing you know something comes up on your newsfeed that you shared something from " I like chicks with dicks that sit on wigs of dildos".

    .not cool

    In my experience, once you give a page a name, you can't change it no more.

    Facebook won't let you change the name of a page, I don't know how you did it initially :p
