    I'm pretty sure when you select your username, it clearly says "You cannot change this later." – boxspah Apr 19 '15 at 15:20

Its official now, as part of the Air sweeper defense update, players who have town hall 5 and above have the ability to change the name once.

To change the name, go to settings and click on Change name.

You will be able to do it only once, so choose wisely :)

  • More information on this posted by Anoushka[Supercell] on the CoC forums: "Only one (1) name change per player will be allowed (and it is for free); as many people suggested already, each player will have its unique player tag (found in player profile), just like clan tags, except that there won't be any "player search" tab or feature." – Jacob Apr 23 '15 at 6:10
  • Thanks Jacob, I have added it, and also included link to the original thread. – GoodSp33d Apr 23 '15 at 16:15

According to Supercell's faq, you may not change your name once you make one.

You can try contacting Support at clashofclans.feedback@supercell.com.

However they typically only change it if:
- Your full name is exposed, or
- It contains offensive words.

Edit: According to notes about an upcoming update, you will be able to change your name once, for free, in the future.
