How to Change Your Roblox Name

Wondering how to change your Roblox name for something fresh and exciting? Perhaps the one you add at the time of account creation would not be best at all. Well, in Roblox, you can easily change either your display or username in just a couple of seconds.

Difference Between Username and Display Name on Roblox

The term username and display name are used correspondingly in a lot of circumstances. However, they are two different things in Roblox. Here is a quick round-up:

  • Every player’s Username must be unique, but display names are common and shareable. There are a few rejections, like imitating Roblox staff or well-known streamers, but they are certain and unusual.
  • Roblox charges 1000 Robux to change a player’s username. However, changing the display name is free.
  • You can change your Roblox display name for free. However, if you want to change your Roblox username, you have to pay 1000 Robux.
  • In most cases, the display name is the primary thing other players will see, but both names are visible to everyone.

For instance, Roblox displays the name function as the same as names on Twitter X. The Username is even set out with a @ under the display name on a user’s page, the same as X (Twitter).
