If you are interested in listing your second name on your Facebook account (eg nickname, professional name or maiden name), you will have to add an alternate name to your Facebook account.
How To Get Started
- Click the account menu at the top right of your Facebook page.
- Choose Account Settings.
- Find the Name field and click Edit.
- Enter your alternate name in the provided box as seen in the picture below:
5. Check Include this on my profile (timeline) to have your alternate name listed on your profile (timeline). Otherwise, it will only help people find you in search. Save your changes.
The "NigerianBlogger" enclosed in bracket in the picture above is the alternate name I used for this Facebook profile of mine. The alternate name will also show up next to your name in search results and any friend requests you send.
I hope this helps...
