Hi Himanshu,


Thanks for reaching out to us. To change 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. For more information please check our help article about changing your profile nameYou can use your formal salutation in the First Name field. So, the system would know you as Mr. or Mrs. Himanshu. 


Thank you.
