Please follow the picture guide below.

At the bottom of your name page there is an edit button. The picture is from a standard page. It looks different on a PRO page, but it goes to the same second page.

Check off name correction
GO TO  THE BOTTOM AND SELECT CONTINUE
TYPE IN THE NAME CORRECTION AND AN EXPLANATION AS TO WHY YOU'RE CORRECTING IT
AT THE BOTTOM SELECT CHECK THESE UPDATES
CHECK THE WARNING BOX CORRECT THE NAME TO.............................DO NOT MERGE.....................
SELECT RE-CHECK...........................
IF YOU HAVE EVERYTHING CORRECT THE SUBMISSION FORM TURNS GREEN.
SELECT SUBMIT..............................................
YOUR DONE
THE CHANGE SHOULD TAKE ABOUT A WEEK.

also another question...since my name was spelt incorrectly all this while, my page didn't pick up on my news articles ...anyway to have those previous articles with the right spelling be tagged/linked on my page now that my name change has happened?
