Youtube Name Changed Too Recently

I changed my YouTube name using the “Edit on Google” link in the “Overview” section in YouTube.

Đang xem: Youtube name changed too recently

This worked fine and I see the new name but when I got to my channel page it still shows the old name for the channel title. Is there a separate setting to update my channel title?

It also shows my old name in a few other sections like “Analytics” in “Creator Studio”.

Here is a screenshot to show you the problem. My new name appears correctly in the account popup view but on my channel page it still shows the old name in the title.

It can take a while until the name change is displayed everywhere. Clearing your cache and cookies may speed it up for you, but if you just wait, it should change itself eventually.

Note that your old name will persist longest in search results, sometimes for weeks.

Reason why you name is not changing:

As others said, it might just be because you haven”t waited long enough (for me, it took multiple weeks)It could be possible that you are using a Brand Account. If you”re using a Brand Account, you have to change it in by going into YouTube and clicking on the Settings option in the menu bar. Then click on Edit on Google which is located next to your profile picture.

For me, for whatever reason, it only changed when I did it both on the app on my phone and on my computer. Idk why, but there you go; it was immediate. Still takes forever to do the same in the search, though.

Idk if it was accident or not, but my solution seemed to work. I had the same problem to where it showed my old name, so I had an idea. I changed my name again (naming it the same thing) and it replaced my old name with my new name, since I changed it twice. (If it doesn”t work, trying using 2 devices.)

Ex:Old name: “Potato”.New name: “Chip”.Change name again to: “Chip”.YouTube thinks “Chip” was your old name.
