Some basic information

You might be knowing that facebook allows you to change your name more than a couple of times after you had created your account. Facebook insists you to always enter your legal name on your account as there are many cyber crimes occurring nowadays using the social media. Some people frequently change their name on facebook and they are reluctant to enter their original name may be because of the privacy issues. I suggest you to always use your real legal name on facebook and it will bring you good more than bad. Now our concern is that, we need to change the name on facebook even if you have changed the name for the maximum allowed times. Go through the below section.

Please note that this option only allows you to change your name to your legal name as it is mentioned in any of your government documents because to change the name even after limit we need to upload one of these documents to Facebook Support Centre so that they will change the name to whatever it is mentioned in the uploaded document.
