When you say you want to change your name, do you mean the name in your URL or the name in your actual Youtube username? For the URL, you have to have over a certain amount of subscribers to get the chance to change it, but your username should be somewhere if you go your dashboard, click the channel tab, click advanced settings and a change icon will show up next to your name, where you can change it.

I believe he means he wants to rebrand, not that he doesn't know how to.

You can rebrand at any time you want, but you have to make sure that your subscribers know that only the look and name of the channel are changing, not the content of the channel itself. Check out this other forum post to see more about it. yttalk.com/threads/how-do-i-successfully-re-brand.265125/

I do not think it's too late. We had 1000+ subs when I changed our channel name and custom url. As long as you inform your subscribers, I think it should be fine.

When I started my channel name was Rohan.But because of custom URL was unavailable on that name.So I changed my channel name to Rohan TV.What I did is just make a short video on my channel about the reason why changed my name so that my subscribers don't get confused.Agree with kaylasToybox, It's fine as long as you inform your subscribers :)

As I said above, he knows how to, he's just trying to figure out if it's worth doing as if you do it improperly it can confuse and lose you some subscribers.
