How do I Change my Name on Facebook?
Note: this trick no longer works

If you change your name more than a few times, Facebook will force you to use the name you last used. If your name gets locked like that, because you know how to change it, and it wont let you anymore, here is what you do.

First, go to account settings and select to deactivate your account (dont worry, it wont be deleted) - Then, when it asks you WHY you want to deactivate your account, select "my account was hacked" - then click the word "here" after that, and follow the instructions.
