Update your name in Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo Mail, Yandex Mail and Zoho Mail

When you sign up for a new email account, the first and last name you enter will be used for more than just identification. By default, most email accounts have this first and last name in the From every time you send an email.

If you prefer to display a different name – such as an alias or nickname – this is easy to change. The process varies from service to service, but all major webmail service providers offer this option.

There are two different types of names associated with sending email. You can change the name displayed in the field From † The other is your email address, which usually cannot be changed.

Even if you use your real name in your email address, changing your email address usually requires you to sign up for a brand new account. Since most webmail services are free, signing up for a new account is a viable option if you really want to change your email address. Make sure to set up email forwarding so you don’t miss a single message.
