Common Problems

  • I would like to change the name of my World of Warcraft
  • I want to rename my old World of Warcraft license

There is no way to alter the name of individual World of Warcraft accounts. Once the name has been assigned, it is permanently attached to the account.

Other players are not able to see your World of Warcraft account name. The name can only be seen on your Blizzard Account Settings page or when you are choosing which World of Warcraft license you want to play in the Blizzard Battle.net Desktop App or game client.
