Sangeetha, certainly you can change your Upwork profile name to match your real name. Go to your Settings> Contact Information and click "Edit." You may need to complete an additional ID verification in order for it to be changed.

Hi Saima,

 

Just to confirm, are you trying to verify your identity or requested for a name change only?

I was setting up bank account; I work in fiverr; so I was not familiar with
Upwork policies; i read articles in Upwork community and find that I can
not change my name to other to link the bank account holder.
