    Removing my last name from my home screen

    How do I remove my last name from my own home screen?

    (I know how to remove it so that other PSN users can't see it)

    Is this possible?

    Must be associated with your email address you used. I guess you could change your name in the email settings.

    Editing my profile won't allow for a blank entry in the "Last name" field.

    Any of your PSN friends send you a request to reveal your real name? If so, did you accept the request?

    Then just use a fake name.

    Change your name to "Mother$#@! Jones".

    Thanks to everybody who tried to help. I like Bitbydeath's idea. But I guess it's just not possible to remove it.

    What is most annoying is that if I do change my last name to "B" instead of my whole name, my whole name "B-----------" still shows up in the "What's New" area of the home screen whenever I get trophies, like a game, etc ...

    How is that even possible when I've changed all instances of my last name to "B" ????

    You know that your full name only shows up for YOU right?

    Your name on the homescreen is for you, personally, no one else sees it if you didnt set it up to begin with... if you already disabled the social sharing or never set it up... then you have nothing to worry about.

    Do you not like your name? Or do you not like that its personalized specially for you?

    (if you want me to show you... add me on PSN, SomaXD... then go to whats new... and look at all my recent stuff... it will show up as SomaXD to you, but on my screen it says My real name)

    Thanks, and yes I know.

    Just some odd behaviour like what I mentioned in post #18. Plus this:

    My sub accounts don't display their last names while on their home screens. Nor do the sub accounts show their last names on the User login screen. Does that seem odd or is that normal behaviour for the UI?

    because youre the primary user/owner of the console is why no one else shows their last name... theyre essentially using your console ie: theyre guests.

    If you want a small little workaround, while it doesnt offer EXACTLY what you want... its decent looking:

    Just make your first name PSN or PSNID and last name "YourPSNname"

    It looks like this:

    I tried a bunch of different stuff, apparently having something in the last name box is required. I personally find it annoying, I just want to see my PSN name for activities and whatnot, rather than my PSN name + some random required letter in the last name box.

    Done.

    But why won't the "What's new" section of the UI show my new name??? Could anybody verify this bug for me? Thanks.

    Are you intending to do streaming/YouTubing?

    No. It's just an annoying UI bug that I don't want to look at.
