Click on Tree Settings; it will pull up a box with the name and you can type what you want in that.

If you want to change your name in the tree, pull your tree up and then hover your mouse over your name. You will see the word edit. Click on edit and it will allow you to change your letter's or even the whole name.

Sean,
To change the name of one of your Ancestry trees, left click on "Family Trees" on the menu bar at the top of your Ancestry Home Page (or you can hover and then click on "more"!)

A list of all of your trees should appear. On the line beneath the tree name you have the option to "Manage Tree", click on this. You can then edit the tree name.

To change your Ancestry username look at the top of your Ancestry home page you should see "Hi *username* Sign Out | Messages | ..."

Click on the *username* and your profile page should appear.

There is a large green button "Edit name and location", click this to edit your user name.

I think Shaun wants to change his Ancestry username, not an entry in his tree?

Thanks everyone. For some reason what is working for some does not work for others. By using some of what everyone said I located a way to change the name of my family tree.
