Be it Facebook, Twitter or any other social media, your name is the most important thing. People know you by your name and more significantly; using a real name makes interaction better. While most people use their real names, there are some who like changing their names just to create confusion.
But, sometimes you just cannot deal with those non-descriptive nicknames that can create confusion. Fortunately, for Snapchat users, there’s already an option to not only change their display name but also their friends’.
If you’re a Snapchat user and you want to override the chosen display name of your friends, to avoid confusion, or just to give them a new name created by you, you’re on the right place. Here’s how!
How to Change Display Name of Snapchat Friends on iPhone
Step #1. Launch Snapchat on your iPhone.
Step #2. Tap on the Snapchat icon at the top or just swipe down.
Step #3. Go to My Friends and tap on the friend whose name is to be changed.
Step #4. Next to their name is a settings icon, tap on that.
Step #5. Tap on Edit Name and type in the new name.
Step #6. Tap Save.
Once you touch the “Save” button, your friend’s name will start showing up as what you’ve just chosen. And before you click on some other post, here’s a trick to change your Snapchat username on iPhone.

Does it show them if you’ve changed their name??
No, the feature is all client-side, i.e., it applies only to your account. The other profiles aren’t notified in any way unless they check your phone or have access to your account.
