  • Head to and get yourself logged into your account by entering your Gmail name and password.
  • Tap “Settings”, which resembles a cogwheel, and choose “Settings” from the drop-down menu.
  • Tap “Accounts and Imports” from the top menu. (On some versions of Gmail, the tab will be named “Accounts.”)
  • Choose “Edit info” close to “Send Mail as.”
  • A pop-up window will be visible. Enter your new name into the “Name” text box.
  • Tap “Save Changes” to save the fresh name.
