How to change your Facebook page name?
For last couple of months we tried to remove the word "Studio" from our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/locastic) and leave only the word "Locastic". Since we have over 200 fans and we are not a large brand like Coca Cola, Facebook did not let us to make the change. We tried all sort of ways, contacts, e-mails, explanations. Most often, we did not get any response whatsoever.
While surfing on different Facebook pages, I have noticed that it is possible to suggest an edit on a page I am not the administrator for - Suggest an Edit.
By clicking the link "Suggest an Edit", a popup window appears, through which you can suggest the edits, among which, the Name is also offered. The form with the name and surname will surely appearif the fanpage is categorized as "Company or organizations".
We have managed to change Locastic by asking about 15 people to click the Suggest an Edit and type the correct name we would like to have. After a while, 2 days to be precise, an option under Audience Suggestions appeared and we were able to confirm the new name. That's about it!
For sure, Facebook has good reasons for not allowing changes in the fanpage name area. However, it should accept the change when good reasons are given, no matter which brand we are talking about (or how large one, for that matter). Since then, I hope you find this little trick useful.

Lots of you said you don't have poup window like above, that you get this one:
The thing is you have no location on you Page so fans can't give you their suggestions. Try adding location, in few minutes (if you're lucky :) ) you will have full Suggest Information options.
P.S. We tried renameing process with few pages by now and they all worked perfectly. Good luck! :)
