Change Name on Tinder the Well-Known Way
Tinder pulls your name from Facebook. So the standard, Tinder-recommended way to change your name on Tinder is to change it on Facebook.
Once you’ve done this…
• For some people, the change appears in Tinder a few days later.
• Some people need to log out of Tinder and in again to see the change.
• Many people still won’t see the changed name in Tinder after a week, and the Tinder FAQ says these people need to completely delete their Tinder account and start over in order for Tinder to register their change in name.
Change Name on Tinder the Lesser-Known Way
So the first option we just went over — which you’ll find everyone online recommending — kind of sucks.
There is another slightly less crappy option, though.
Here’s what you can do: Create a new Facebook account with a different email address, using the name you want to use on Tinder. Then make a new account on Tinder.
This way, you don’t have to sit around wondering if the Facebook change is ever going to take effect on Tinder, you don’t have to mess with your main Facebook, and you don’t risk losing all of the information in your old Tinder account.
