Everyone has made an embarrassing display name that they are not proud of, and if you play Roblox you have probably encountered this same dilemma. Some begin playing this game when they are just eight years old, and by the time they are 16, they realize just how childish it sounds. Luckily, there is a way to change it so you don’t have to be forced to make an entirely new account to save your sanity.

Does It Cost Anything?

Fortunately, Roblox has made changing your name an entirely free feature, so you never have to feel guilty about spending your Robux and can save it for some of these amazing paid access games. It isn’t like other platforms that give you a single freebie and then force you to pay a certain amount if you ever want to change it for a second or third time.

Other Things You Should Know Before Making The Change

There are a few more things you should know before making a change to the display name associated with your account. First, you can change your name as many times as you want, but this can only be done once every seven days. Make sure you are happy with your new name before you change it, as otherwise you will be forced to keep it for an entire week before you can alter it again.

When it comes to display names there are also no restrictions to how many players can have the same display name, and this might be something that Slenders tend to have in common. It is part of the reason why they are so open with name changes because they don't have to limit what you choose, apart from having to follow their community guidelines.

Just be aware before you decide to change it that everyone on Roblox will be able to see it. This is why it is so important to follow the guideline that encourages you to avoid adding any personal information.
