    That would be the name of the main Google account associated with your phone. Do you have a different Google account you want to switch it to?

    To change the name press that tile > press the name on the next screen > press menu (top right 3 dots) > enter new name.

    That is the device profile name and it will link your Google+ account if you have that loaded to the device. Hope this helps, let us know if you have further questions!

    Default Re: Wrong Name

    Turns out I had to change the name in my contact list under 'Me'
    First time I got the phone I wrote my friend's name by mistake
    Now it's okay

    Thank you !
