I can't change the name on my account. I have gone into the Personal Information page and changed the nickname and my name, but still the wrong name still shows when I send an email.
It does sound like your sending name may need to be corrected as well. You can check your sending name by following the page here: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/sln28072.html

I also have this problem. This makes me look sketchy. People know me with one name, yet when I email them, It's a different last name. Is there some way to fix this? I have had my email for 15 years, I married 7 years ago. Name is changed on my account, yet every time an email is sent or if I reply. My former name appears.

My name is Samir Saker. But every time I send any email to someone my name shows Yahoo Mail to mail receiver. I want to fix this problem. But my name is not updating from Yahoo Mail to Samir Saker. Please let me know how to fix this problem.

Why is it easier to change my name on the federal level than to change my name with an email account? If the settings say I can change my name but it still emails with the original name I signed up for the account with that's broken and bull. I changed the setting years ago and it still shows my maiden name when I send an email.

I have the same issue. Please help!
I'm fed up of people replying to my husband because his name comes up at the top of the e-mails they receive from me. I've "changed" it several times but nothing happened.
