you can change your display name only ONCE a week ... so if you want to change it... be patient till that's passed :)

here you find a little more info about this :

 

Display names

Your display name is:

  • A name you choose shown to other avatars in the Second Life virtual world.
  • A string of charactersup to 31 characters long  that contains at least one alphanumeric character. It can include most Unicode script characters, spaces, and some punctuation.
  • Distinct from the username you use to log in. 
  • Not necessarily unique; other avatars may have the same display name as you.

 

You can choose whether or not to show other Residents' display names and usernames inworld. If you choose to view display names or usernames, they appear in the name tags above every avatar and in chat.

Allowed characters

In addition to letters and numbers, you can use the following characters in your display name:

  • ' (apostrophe)
  • - (hyphen-minus)
  • . (full stop)
  • : (colon)
  • · (middle dot)
  • ֊ ֊  (Armenian hyphen)
  •  (Hebrew geresh)
  • ״ (Hebrew gershayim)
  • (Tibetan tsheg)
  • - (hyphen)
  • (right single quotation mark)
  • (hyphenation point)
  • = (katakana-hiragana double hyphen)
  • · (katakana middle dot)

Setting or changing your display name

You can change your display name once every seven days, but you can Reset it at any time, which makes it appear as your "classic" Second Life first name and last name, or your username.

To set or change your display name:

  1. Log into Second Life.
  2. In the Second Life Viewer, click Me > Profile... or profile1.jpg in the toolbar.
  3. Click Edit Profile.
  4. Click Display Name.
  5. Type the desired display name in the field under New Display Name.
  6. Type the name again to confirm.
  7. Click Save.

To reset your display name to its default (the same as your username) in the Edit Profile page, click Reset.

Alternatively, you can set or reset your display name on your profile web page:

https://my.secondlife.com/your.user.name

Where your.user.name is your username.
