Why is my display name victorlloydcomposer-74023 instead of just having Victor Lloyd? How do I change this?

I have just created my account, and my display name is not how I want it, it is the current ID name which has no spaces and adds random numbers at the end of my name, how do I use just my name with a space like everyone else's account?

It sounds like you are confusing your IMDb user activity page with your IMDb name page. 

Please see https://help.imdb.com/article/imdbpro/manage-your-imdb-page/what-s-the-difference-between-an-imdb-pa... for more details on the difference.

The OP is not really asking how to change his user name; he is confused between a user name and an IMDb name page.

Hi, Victor Lloyd. The identifier "victorlloydcomposer-74023" is not your "display name" exactly. It is your IMDb user handle or "IMDb ID", which is unique. The IMDb founder was able to look up the handle used by you on IMDb.com (not IMDb GS) from your email address (which is hidden from all non-administrative users but yourself, hence ACT_1's bewilderment). You can change your IMDb handle, but it might not be possible to change it to "Victor Lloyd" specifically. Visit https://www.imdb.com/registration/changenick please. That is where you'd go to change your handle/nick/username on IMDb.

Victor: You can't use Victor Lloyd as your IMDb user handle in that exact form, because it has a space in the middle. You could use Victor-Lloyd or Victor_Lloyd if those names have not been used by anyone before. Or you could use a completely arbitrary name as your user handle; for example, gromit82 is my IMDb user handle, but it bears no resemblance to my real name.

Thank you Col, yes I guess I was confused between the user activity page and imdb name page.  Thank you
