You can change how your name is displayed from the Edit Profile page. There are two options:

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.

  1. Move your cursor over Profile at the top of your homepage and click Edit Profile.
  2. Click the Edit icon to the left of your name.
  3. Click Display Name and select the name you want to display from the dropdown list.
  4. Click Save.
