You can change how your name is displayed from the Edit Profile page. There are two options:
- First and last name.
- First name and last initial. Note: This option is only available if you've turned off your public profile.
Your first-degree connections always see your full name, regardless of your settings. But if you've turned off your public profile you can change how other LinkedIn members see your name.
- Move your cursor over Profile at the top of your homepage and click Edit Profile.
- Click the Edit icon to the left of your name.
- Click Display Name and select the name you want to display from the dropdown list.
- Click Save.
