How to Change Your Display Name in Gmail

Gmail logo

When you send an email from your Gmail account, your display name (along with other information) will be shown to the recipient. You can change the display name associated with your Gmail account in a few steps. Here’s how.

You can only change the name in your Gmail account in a desktop browser. You cannot use the Gmail mobile app on Android, iPhone or iPad to change your name.

To change your Gmail account name, log in to your account from the Gmail website in your desktop browser. Once logged in, click on the gear icon to open the “Settings”

; menu.

Then select “View all settings” at the top of the drop-down menu.

You are now in the “General” tab of the Gmail Settings menu. Click on the “Accounts and Import” tab.

In the ‘Send Email As’ section, you will see your email address and the display name associated with that address. Click the “Edit Info” button to change your display name.

A new window will appear. Here you can change your display name by clicking the bubble next to the text box and then typing the new display name in that text box. Click on “Save changes” to apply the change.

Enter and save a new display name

You will now see the newly entered display name next to the “Send Email As” section in the Gmail settings menu.

The next time you send an email, your new display name will be shown to the recipient.

While Google allows you to change your display name, you can’t actually change your username (which is different from your display name) or your email address. But if you really need a new email address, you can always migrate your Google account to a new one.
