Changing Your Display Name in Google

Issue

I changed my Campus Network Username with IT, but my Google account still shows my old name.

 

Environment

  • Google

 

Information

Your name has changed in Google, however it does not effect your "display name." Your display name is something you can set, which will show in applications like Hangouts.

 

Resolution

  1. Sign into Google with your GRCC credentials
  2. Navigate to your Google About Me page
  3. Click Name
  4. Click the edit icon  and set your name
  5. Click Save
