How to change your name

Important: You can’t change your name from the Gmail app.

On your computer, open Gmail.

In the top right, click Settings Settings and then Settings.

Click the Accounts and Import or Accounts tab.

Under “Send mail as,” click Edit info.

Enter the name you want to show when you send messages.

At the bottom, enter your password and click Save changes.

If you can’t change your name

If you get an error that says “This setting can’t be changed for your account,” it may mean:

  • You’ve changed your name too many times during a short period of time.
  • You’re on a G Suite account and your admin doesn’t allow you to change the name.
