Simple Guide on How to Change your YouTube Channel Name

If you have wanted to change your YouTube channel's name and found it so complicated to do, then this tutorial will guide you through on how you can achieve this within 5 minutes.

Our name or username is our online identity that represents us or a brand. It's the first thing our subscriber or followers sees when they come to your profile.

If you are not pleased with the name on your YouTube channel and would like to change it to a more attractive name, then follow the guide below. This is not as simple as it's been done on other socials like Facebook and Twitter, but I've made everything clear to understand.

Here’s how to change your YouTube channel's name.

How to Change your YouTube Channel Name

  1. Sign in to your YouTube account with your gmail if you are not yet logged in. 
  2. Click your picture in the top right-hand corner, then select Settings. This will take you to your channel overview.
  3. Click on the Edit on Google link to change your YouTube name. Due to the integration of Google services, changing your name on YouTube means you also have to change it on Google+ too. 
  4. When you click on the Edit on Google link, it will take you to your Google+ profile page. Using the on-screen window, change your First Name and Surname to whatever you want your channel to be called. If you want to keep your name intact, you can simply add a nickname, as well as a combination of both your original YouTube name and your nickname.
  5. To choose the configuration, click the drop-down arrows by the Display my Name As option. 
  6. After selecting from the available options, click Ok to finish.

That's all friends, all of your Google accounts will start using the new name including your YouTube channel, Gmail and also, the new name will appear when people visit your channel’s main page.
