Youtube Channel Name

Your YouTube channel name and profile picture are not the same as your Google Account name and picture (you can change your channel name and profile picture on YouTube. It does not affect your Google account’s name and profile picture).

All of your channel Name activity will still be stored with your Google Account and used in accordance with Youtube privacy policy. Your Google Account is always your primary account; the YouTube name is only your public persona on YouTube.

If you change your channel name and picture, it will only be visible on YouTube. You can make changes to your Google account name and picture here (with no changes made to your YouTube channel name).

Have it in mind that Changing your name will remove your verification badge if you already have one. So I suggest you leave your channel name the way it is if you are already verified on YouTube.
