You should be able to click on your picture on the top right of the YouTube home page and click on the "YouTube settings" right next you "Creator Studio". Right next to your channel name you should then be able to click on "Edit on Google". Hopefully this helps :)

How many times can a channel change its name? As many as the owner wants? or is it limited? :p

You can only change your name a few times through Google Plus before it makes you wait for a few months.

My channel is connected to my Google Plus account - unfortunately. And so recently I decided to change it from "Robert Angle" to "Robert Angle Vlogs" as this way people on Google Plus would still recognize me and then people on YouTube would recognize me as a content creator.

When I made the change, I saw a notification that I could only change my name up to 3 times per calendar year.

I thought there would have been some sort of limit on the number of times it can be changed if it was possible to change the channel name. :p Cool, cool, thanks for your replies. :D

Be aware your URL will not change. Think carefully before picking an URL as you will have it for life on YouTube.

You can change your name on Google+ BUT you will never change the meta details so people will be able to find you with your new name but your channel will always be associated with the old name

You would have created a new Google + page that carries your channel Name and branding and the link it to your channel

You would have simply created a new Google+ page that carries the channel name that you want and then link it to the channel. That way the page will carry your channel branding.
