How do I change my AWS account name?


You can change the name of an AWS account in the AWS Billing and Management console.

Note: The AWS account name can be modified only by the root user. For more information, see Tasks that require root user credentials.

  1. Sign in to the AWS account that you want to modify using your AWS account root user credentials.
  2. Choose your name from the navigation bar, and then select My Account.
  3. Next to Account Settings, choose Edit.
    Note: If you aren't signed in as the root user, the Edit option isn't available.
  4. Enter the new AWS account name, and then choose Update.

Note: The updated account name can take up to four hours to reflect in the AWS Management Console.
