In Skype, click or tap your name and your profile will be displayed.
Select your display name in your profile. An edit box appears.
Type the name you want to use and select the tick button or press Enter. Your display name will be updated.
Remember, your friends might change the way your name is displayed in their Skype contact lists, so the display name you choose for yourself isn’t necessarily the one they see for you.
In Skype for Windows desktop, you can also change a contact’s name: just right-click on it in your contact list and choose Rename. This only changes the name in your Skype, not theirs.
