If you created a username when you registered for an account, then it will be displayed on your public profile. Usernames cannot be changed except in the event of documented legal action (such as trademark infringement) at Etsy's discretion.
Important information about usernames:
- Mature content, profane, or racist language is not allowed in a username.
- Usernames containing the name "Etsy" are considered a violation of the "Etsy" trademark and are not allowed.
Using a full name to replace your username
If you have a name on your Etsy profile, it can take the place of your username across most of the site.
To see if you already have a full name on your account, go to You > View profile > Edit Profile. You can add or make changes from here.
