    Unless there's been a legit mistake in your first name, something you can prove, I don't think you can change it.

    You can change the name in the added credit card.

    Add a credit card, change the name there.

    It wont change the name in Paypal though

    or you may make a new account in your husband's name and then verify that account . As for this account , you may withdraw the funds .

    Hi!,
    You cannot directly change your paypal account name.Be it first or last.You try to have a credit card of the name that you have and then open a new paypal account to get verified through paypal.
    Regards,
    Anthony

    Unless there's a real reason to keep the old account, I recommend just opening a new one.

    You surely can change your first name at the time of making your withrawal through a cheque, but just the first name...

    I have the same problem. I entered my business name as my last name now i cant change it. There're payments going through here and there. If we open a new account can we transfer the funds? Or withdraw the fund first then open up a new account.
