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.

  1. Sign in to the AWS account you want to modify using your root credentials.
  2. Choose your name from the navigation bar, and select My Account.
  3. Next to Account Settings, choose Edit.
    Note: If you are not signed in as the root user, the Edit option won't be available.

The updated account name can take up to four hours to reflect in the AWS console.
