Due to Facebook's terms of service, you would never want to change your Facebook name whatsoever as long as there is any genuine reason to do so such as changing your name due to marriage.

Before you go any further towards the process of changing your Facebook name, you must keep in mind that once you make amendments in your name on Facebook, you will not be able to make any further changes before the duration of 60 days. This restriction has been added to Facebook in order to prevent fake IDs and/or frauds.

Once you clearly understand the restrictions and consequences that you might experience after changing your Facebook name, you can follow the steps given below to get the job done using your Android phone:

This entire process is very simple and easy even for the person who is using an Android Smartphone for the first time
