You can try changing your own name in your contacts list, but that may not do anything. If that doesn't work, that means you can't change your name. The only way for your name to appear differently to your chat buddies is if they change your name themselves in their contacts list.

My name was spelled wrong on the chat screen. I was able to change it. And it allows a place for a nickname. It immediately corrected the chat name when I was through. Click "settings", then "accounts & import", then under Change Account Settings click on "google account settings". It'll bring up a new page- under profile click "edit your personal info". Hope that helps!

That option is not available for my account, which is why I thought you couldn't change your nickname. Maybe my account is different somehow.

open your contacts and your personal information bar.
open",edit contact information", and change your name. this bar is linked to your account and picture.

I followed the instructions to Edit personal information - got there from the dashboard.  I changed my first and last name and saved it.  When I send messages to anyone, it still shows my old name.  Where is that stored - I want to change it.

Thanks!

Go to settings. Click on accounts and Imports. The secong one down says "Send Mail As:" On the right side of the screen there is two blue words that are underlined. They are: edit info. Click on that. Next a box will pop up. It has two bullets you can click on. One has your current display name. The other is a blank box. Type what you want tour new name to be in the box then click on the bullet next to it. then your done

Still does not change the display name. I've tried all of the above for hours. Now what? My "display" name shows up as  "Me" in the inbox....which is HORRENDOUS because I am sending out correspondence for job-hunting. This is TERRIBLE.
