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.
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:
- My business name has changed
- My page name has been misspelled
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.
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.

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:
- Open your Page’s admin panel
- Click Manage
- Select Edit Page
- Select Basic Information from the left sidebar
- Change the text in the Name field and save your edits
