Review our name standards.
Click in the top right of Facebook and select Settings.
Click Name.
Enter your name and click Review Change.
Enter your password and click Save Changes.

Just a warning - if you go by a completely different pseudonym, Facebook may lock and ban your account, as you're meant to use your real name. They don't actively check, as far as I know though, they rely on people reporting the fake names, so as long as your friends are decent, you should be fine.

You can't do it anymore. You have to have your own real name. They don't even allow nick names anymore.

A load of my colleagues have fake names and nick names, names deliberately misspelled and middle names so far no one's had any problems

I don't have my real name on Facebook, they once asked me why and when I explained they unlocked my account.
