    Hi,

    I have a business with 4k+ fans and I want to change the name on Facebook. Although I have never done it, all of the businesses bills are in a name other than what I want to change it to, so I’m not sure how to provide documentation. I know a lot of businesses who do this, especially in the restaurant/entertainment business. Is there a way around this?

    Thanks,
    Casey

      Casey, you can try submitting it. Sometimes they do go through even though the names don’t match.

      Once you submit a request to change your Facebook Page name, let me know how it turns out.
