    Thats a tricky one, the first answer is a definitive NO, Facebook doesnt like people changing their fanpages name, they say that if they allow that, marketers will use it to trick people.

    The longer answer is a "maybe"; in some circumstances, Facebook allow users to change the names of their fanpages, but for doing so, the change must fulfill the followings requirements:

    -It cant be a drastic change, if you just want to make a small change, like adding some word or stuff like that, you will be fine, but if you want to drastically change the name, Facebook wont accept it.

    -The change cant also change the fanpage niche, this is, if your fanpage is about bananas, and you want to make it about oranges, you cant do that, because you will be forcing your audience to like oranges, when they liked bananas.

    -You can only change the name once.
