So is that a fix? Some will carry a torch that it must be done in the app. Here I used the Gmail web site and changed it. All good here.
When people get an email from me it reads from "LOLO LOLO", college nickname:), instead of my actual name/email address. I have done the following to try to change this and when I go into it reads my real name but its not working and emails are being sent as the nickname.
Change your name
On your computer, open Gmail. You can't change your username from the Gmail app.
In the top right, click Settings .
Click the Accounts and Import tab.
In the "Send mail as" section, click edit info.
Add the name you want to show when you send messages.
At the bottom, click Save Changes.
Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? Thank you very much!
