Hey, I'm thinking of changing my channel name.
I started my channel 2 years ago and wanted some anonimity, so I didn't use my own name. But since most of my subscribers know my real name and I don't really care anymore, so I'm thinking of changing it to something including my name. It just feels more personal.
I'm almost at 9000 subscribers. Do you think this will have some adverse effect on my channel?

If you leave your thumbnail the same, and keep the art on your banner consistent (other than name change), I'm sure your subs and followers won't get too confused. My concern would be with the custom URL on YouTube, as I don't think that can be changed. There is also any associated social media accounts to consider like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Patreon, etc.

Changing your name, I think has no effect as I've tried that years ago and it did not impact much negatively, even the the impact will probably be miniscule
