Change the name of your Facebook Business Page #30DTC

You have a successful business page for your company, but your company name changed and you have more than 100 people following your page.

Before you had to keep the name or create a new page.
Now you can request a name change with Facebook.

Change your Facebook page name

Use this form:
https://www.facebook.com/help/contact_us.php?id=262629790471076

Update: It looks like the link is not working anymore – Facebook has however changed it to 200 likes as the new level until when you can change your page name.

There are three options:

  1. My business name has changed
  2. My page name has been misspelled
  3. Other

You don’t have to add any special information if you choose other.

Page not in English

Not sure what languages are supported for a Page name change. At the moment Dutch is not supported. See below a copy of the response I got from two people requesting a Page name change.

Hi,

Unfortunately, we do not support Page name change requests in your language at this time. We are working hard to start supporting this issue. We apologize for any inconvenience. In the meantime, please visit the Pages help center for all other Page related questions at http://www.facebook.com/help/pages.

Thanks,

The Facebook Team

Less than 100 Likes?

Does your page still have less than 100 people who clicked ‘Like’?
You can change the name in the admin section of your page.

To edit your Page name:

  1. Open your Page’s admin panel
  2. Click Manage
  3. Select Edit Page
  4. Select Basic Information from the left sidebar
  5. Change the text in the Name field and save your edits

  1. Gelukt! Dus het kan wel ook in Nederland 😉

  2. I’ve tried that link about 30 times now in the past three weeks and it’s definitely not working – says content is no longer available.

  3. Trying to change our name to Ladies2000 on our business page which is presently in French
    Can anyone help. We have been in business for 30 years. Why won’t facebook take our name?

  4. Hi there,
    The request name change link was showing up for me last time I checked on April 18th. I was just waiting to finalize some other branding changes before I submitted the form. Now, the request change link is gone! It looks like Facebook may have changed this policy in the last two weeks…any ideas?
    Thanks.

  5. Is there a way to change my company name in facebook when it has already more than 200 likes,,Any HELP… Thanks…

  6. Dear,

    We are at the stage of re-branding, logo, etc. in our company, so please help in terms of changing our funpage to the new name in order to preserve the continuity of history fb since the beginning of our business. I would add that it does not change neither the owner nor the mission and activities is born. This is the only change its name and logo graphics.
    The options in the panel do not provide assistance.

    Facebook page ID 471056999616368, the name is Berry & Bounty.

    Best wishes and look forward to tips!

    • Hi Marta,
      Since your page has more than 200 Likes you are unable to rename (re-brand) the existing page at this moment.
      I hope Facebook changes this some day. I want to change the name of two pages too…

      The only way to re-brand at this moment would be to start a new page.

    Facebook is not user friendly when it comes to managing a business page. I am trying to help someone rename a page and then we need to merge it with another page… It is frustrating when you can’t talk to someone at Facebook for help to get this done. They should allow you to manage your own business page with at least 2 or 3 changes to the name if needed .. then maybe monitor it and have them submit a change request.. None of the options in their little box (why do you want to change the name) fits the reason we want to change.. and NO box to supply a reason that might hopefully convince FB that the change is okay… It is so sad that a billion dollar company has NO One to help.. They care nothing about their users … We need the page named without losing the fan likes…They should make it a lot easier for you to request a change and since it is a fan type page/business page, they should take care of the request on a timely basis.. not wait weeks to get it done… This should be unacceptable

  8. Hello! I changed my company name but I need some assesment because im based in guatemala, do you provide name change services if i name you as an administrator? BTW, my page is in spanish. Thanx!

  9. I tried changing my FB page name in Saturday. I have more than 200 likes. It said it could take up to 14 days and that I would receive an email but I haven’t gotten anything. How can I check? My marketing and branding is in hold until I know if it goes through!
    Thanks!

    • Hi Delicate Flower, I have no idea how long it takes for such a name change. Did you supply foto’s or other material that Saturday is your brand name?
      What is the URL of your page?
