Character Name Change

Keywords: name change, character, name, change

To change your character name, visit the Name Change page and follow the instructions. Your old character name will be unavailable for 90 days on its current realm. To reclaim that name, purchase another Name Change after 90 days. Visit our Guild Services page for Guild Name Changes.

Your character cannot have their name changed for three days after purchasing a Name Change. You cannot cancel the Name Change once you have pressed the confirmation button.

  • Your existing mail and auctions will not be interrupted or cancelled, but you should let your friends know before you make the change so they don't send new mail to the old name.
  • Characters whose names are changed will remain on your ignore list, but their names will be updated automatically.
  • Your character will remain in your guild and you will remain on all friends lists. The only difference is that you will have a new name, so you should let your friends and guildmates know the new name.
  • Once the Name Change is complete, your Armory profile will take some time to reflect your character's new name.


If your Name Change does not complete properly, visit your Character Name Change History page to cancel the Name Change and retry. Visit our Character Locked page for additional information.
