Do you Feel like changing the YouTube name you made up when you first started your channel? do you Want to rename your channel without starting a completely new channel?
Whether you want to change your YouTube name for better recognition or for brand recognition, trying to figure it all out by yourself can be confusing, frustrating, and time-consuming
In this post I am going to show you how the whole process is relatively quick and simple when you know the steps to follow.
Now before we hit the ground running on how to change your channel name its important to note that by default all if not most youtube channel accounts are linked to a Google account page.
so why is this important?
well it’s important because by Changing your Google account page name, the changes will apply on your youtube channel.
So how do you get to your Google account page to change the name?
Well Sign in to your channel on YouTube and click on your profile picture on the top right
From the popup that appears click on the gear like button that say “Setting”
That will take you to your channel settings page and as you can see from the image below just beside your channel existing name you will see the edit on Google link click on that
When you do that you will probably see a pop up warning you that by Changing your name here, it will change on all your other Google products.
Just below that you will see a form asking for your first and last name and below that it’s asking for a nickname.
Now to change your channel name just type the name in the first and last name area. Below the form where it says Display my name as you will see how your channel name will be displayed you can tweak the name around by playing with the first and last name area.
If you want a single name you can add a dot on the last name area.
If you want your real name together with a channel name you can add a nickname
Here is an example of all that
When you are done with the new changes hit the ok button below to save your settings
After hitting that ok button you are done give it some time and you should see your changed channel name
Now before wrapping up this post it is also important to note that although youtube allows you to change the name of your channel, going overboard with too many name changing is not allowed
I think youtube has a maximum of 3 name changes in a period of one year
How many times have you tried changing your channel name before. Do you think it will make any difference to the growth of your channel
