Change Gmail account display name on top right menu

by Antonio Petricca   Last Updated October 14, 2018 02:03 AM

I've just created a new Gmail account, but I entered a wrong Last and First name.

By the account edit info feature I fixed that information, but in the top right drop down menu I still see the wrong display name.

How could I fix it?

Here are some screenshots:

The change is not instant. When you try to change your name, the dialog box states:

Please note that it may take some time for this change to be fully applied.
