Reasons why you may want to change your name on Facebook

Below are the most popular reasons why people change their name in real life as well as on Facebook.

They dislike their current Facebook name

If you do not like your current Facebook account name, you can file for a change of name by following the procedures highlighted above.

Couples Combining or Hyphenating Surnames to Form a New One

Another popular trend with married or cohabitating couples is the creation of a new surname using parts of each partner’s name or simply hyphenating the two last names for a brand new joint surname.

Again, some states permit the combining or hyphenation of married couples’ surnames.


The desire for a Less or More “Ethnic” Name

People with names that are identifiably “ethnic” sometimes request name changes for various reasons, including ease of pronunciation and spelling; on the other hand, some individuals would like to reclaim their ethnic heritage by returning to a surname that may have been lost over the years or by the adoption of a new one.


Changing Name Following Divorce

Women who are no longer married to a man may also wish to change their last name to their parents name or whatever name they choose.


Religious Reasons

Whether it’s because of a recent religious conversion or simply to honor a person’s religious deity, name changes for religious reasons are quite common.
Some Christians may want to switch the name on Facebook to reflect their baptismal name.


Same-Sex Partners Sharing Surname

Although same-sex partners may not be allowed to legally marry in all states, they can choose to share a surname, which can be particularly convenient in financial or legal transactions.


Political Statement

Although some may consider it extreme to change your name to support a cause, name changes for political reasons are not unheard of.

There you go.. What’s your reason for changing your last name on Facebook?
