Common Problems

  • Can I change the name of my account?
  • I want to alter the name of my old WoW account
  • I would like to change the name of my WoW license

There is no way to alter the name of individual World of Warcraft accounts. Some accounts may have unique names, but those accounts were created before the new Blizzard Account system. 

Other players are not able to see your World of Warcraft account name. The only time it will appear is when logging in if you have more than one World of Warcraft account, or when logged in to your Blizzard Account Management page.
