  • Offensive or suggestive words of any kind
2. If your name follows the standards and you’re still having trouble changing it, find out why.
Other things to keep in mind:
  • The name on your profile should be the name that your friends call you in everyday life. This name should also appear on an ID or document from our ID list.
  • Nicknames can be used as a first or middle name if they’re a variation of your authentic name (like Bob instead of Robert).
  • You can also list another name on your account (example: maiden name, nickname, professional name).
  • Profiles are for individual use only. You can create a Page for a business, organization or idea.
  • Pretending to be anything or anyone isn’t allowed.

 
NOTE: You will not be able to change your name again until after sixty(60) days or two months.

You can also spice up your new name by adding a nickname, a birth name, etc. So go ahead, play around with some new spectacular names but make sure that your change works with the standards of Facebook.
