In real life, nicknames have a way of sticking with us — even if we don't necessarily love them.

But on Discord, nicknames are a choice built into the many options users have for customizing their experience on the platform. And you can change them anytime, provided your role on the server has the permission to do so.

Quick tip: You can also change your username if you want to use the same name across multiple servers.

3. Enter your new nickname in the text field and click on Save Changes.

Alternatively, if you don't mind a more public process, you could use the slash command "/nick" followed by your desired nickname, within a chat for that server, to quickly change it.

Quick tip: if your role on the server has the permission for Manage Nickname, you can change another server member's nickname the same way you change your own.
