There are a number of reasons why you would want to change your name in Snapchat. Sanpchat is a space where the users are usually looking to increase their popularity, so the display name should be unique and amazing. Having a cool name can make quite a difference in your popularity quotient. So if you feel like your name is too common and not catchy or cool enough, you may want to go for a new one. Or it may so happen that you want to distance yourself from your current audience and make a fresh beginning.
But the sad news is that Snapchat does not allow its users to change their username once an account is created. Although the reason for this is not quite clear, it may have something to do with monetization. So if you are looking forward to changing your username, there are only two ways in which you can do so.
Changing your display name
The display name is that name which gets attached to your account. So whenever you post something, your friends will see it as coming from your display name. Hence, to build a huge audience, it is extremely important to use the same display name as your username. The main reason for this being that Snapchat only allows its users to make searches using the username.
When your friends recommend you to their friends, they will obviously do so by giving them your username. When these people look for you, they will be able to find you if your username does not match. Instead, they might end up following the wrong person.
Or it may so happen that your friends like your post and since any post in Snapchat only stays for twenty-four hours, they may immediately inform their friends about it. If your username does not match your display name, it may be a huge downfall.
It will be a reason that you will miss a lot of exposure and opportunities. Therefore, having the same username and display is a great strategy for increasing your following. Since Snapchat puts no restriction in changing your display name, you can change your display name and make it the same as your username.
