Now below guide will help change facebook page name successfully. Read on...

First is to,
Click About
It is located at the top of page and it's among the first things anyone sees whenever they visit your page.
  • Click
    Click About
Click Page InFo
After clicking about, on next page kindly click on Page Info. Now select Name and...
Change Name
In this step, there are two things involved. If your page like is 200 or less then saving directly won't be a problem, but in situation whereby page likes is above 200 then Facebook will demand a review.
To change name,
  • Click on Page Name
    Click on Page Name
  • Enter New Name and
    Enter New Name
  • Click Save Changes if available or
  • Request Change
    Request Changes
Enter Desired Page Name
This is where you have to take the most decision since Facebook only allows change of name once in 7days. Be sure to enter your new page name with caution, think of a name that will last long instead.
  • Type-In new page name in Desire Page Name section.
Add A Document(Documentation)
Facebook requires you to upload a picture of a document with page name written on it in order to verify that you truely own the business/brand name. This way, name change will take effect.

What If I Don't Have Such Document?
It's not an issue or a big deal either. Kindly meet a Professional Graphic Designer to get an awesome design with your business/brand name on it. For real, Facebook will approve your request with that.

Be Patient
Your request may take some time to be approved. The average durations for page name change to take effect is 3days or less.
So you are expected to wait for a while. Kindly go back a check after 3days and see new page name live on Facebook.

Hope above tips helped? Have you change Facebook page name ever? What worked for you? Let me hear from you.
