Mostly many people doesn’t know that Facebook keeps some limits for Pages, Profiles, Groups, Friends, Events etc. Just like we can’t change a Facebook profile name after 5 times, we can’t change our profile username more than 1 time, we can’t change a Facebook page name after 200 Likes, we can’t change a Facebook group name after reaching 250 members, we can’t add more than 5000 friends to our Facebook profile and it is not possible to change the name of an event if it has more than 5000 people invited.
These days, I’ve seen that many setting their Facebook profile names in Different stylish Fonts like ȼɦǿȼLąty Þrîñçé, Nitesh Iı’e Belııve’ııŋ Mąh-self, Іі’є-єм Ѕэжҷ’Айԁ Її’ Ќйѳщ’Їт, Маиѳг Кнцмая etc. But Facebook is banning the accounts who are using those type of stylish fonts, fake names.
Also make sure that your name can’t include:
- Titles of any kind (ex: professional, religious, etc)
- Symbols, repeating characters or punctuation, unusual capitalization and numbers
- Words, phrases, or nicknames in the place of a middle name
- Offensive or suggestive content of any kind
- Characters from multiple languages
As per Facebook rules, the profile name which you use should be your real name as it would be listed on your credit card, student ID, govt-issued proof etc. So I personally suggest everyone to keep your Facebook account with real name(without any fonts or special characters). So if your profile name limit is exceeded and want to change your Facebook profile name to real name, then click below button.
Fill that form. But at last. you have to upload your valid Government-issued Proof – photo ID like a Passport or Driver’s license etc and when your upload finishes, finally click “Send” button.
Any single Proof will be enough in the list of below examples:
- Green card, residence permit or immigration papers
- Birth certificate
- Personal or vehicle insurance card
- Marriage certificate
- Official name change paperwork
- Voter ID card
- Non-driver’s government ID (ex. disability, SNAP or national ID card)
Note: If you don’t have a government-issued Proof-photo ID, you can submit copies of any 2 other documents that together show your full name, birthday and picture.
Any two Proofs will be needed in the list of below examples:
- Credit card
- Utility bill
- School or work ID
- Library card
- Bus card
For more information about the submission of proofs, you can click help links available in Form Page
So when you submit your proofs, Facebook staff will verify it and they will change your name to the real name as which was listed on the proofs that you submit. This whole process may take 4-5 days or 6-7 days like that. But we can’t say any exact prediction that they will change our name within the specific time. Mostly it will take 4-7 days.
Also note that, when Facebook staff verifies your proofs and changes your name, then you won’t be able to change your name again in future. All previous names which you had in your account will be removed. Only the new name will be seen and it will permanent.
