Most of the time while creating a new email id we ignore molecular details like name misspelled, in lower cases etc. For me my name used to flash as “abhishek prakash” instead of more sober and suitable “Abhishek Prakash” (Looks better no? Actually you should never write the name in all lower or upper cases, anywhere be it e-mail, Facebook, You Tube or any such site, writing names in all lower or all upper cases is a bad practice and reflects your ignorance). In this post we will discuss how to change the name in your gmail account.
Log into your gmail account. Look at top right and click on the “gear” symbol to choose “Mail Settings“. It looks some thing like this:
Now go in “Mail Settings” and there choose the “Accounts” tab. Here you can see many options like Adding another email address as your own (with this you can compose from another email inside gmail. for eg: if you are inside your firstname.lastname@example.org you can send mails from email@example.com), you can get emails from other email addresses (for eg. inside your firstname.lastname@example.org you can receive mails from email@example.com), you can grant account access to others (for eg. your account can be read by your secretory and she/he can reply to the mails on your behalf). For changing the name, click on the “edit info” on the right side.
Change your name here and click on “Save Changes“.You can also add another email so that when you send a mail to anyone the reply goes to another account (only reply will be forwarded, you can still receive the mails which are directed to you).
Voila! Its done. Do provide me your feedback by liking/voting/commenting on the post. Enjoy
