Just give a name for your Google or Google+ account.How old is your YouTube account? Was it a pure YouTube account before the site was purchased by Google?

10 years?
Pure YouTube?
Expert:  bbao replied 7 months ago.
That's what I guessed. I had the same issue for my YouTube account after migrating to Google, but that's an issue years ago. I think you should be using an associated Gmail address to sign in. Correct?

I don't remember if I signed in. Anyway, how can I stop my name on comments?
Expert:  bbao replied 7 months ago.

Sorry for replying late as I had no access to YouTube settings on desktop until now.

Sign in at YouTube using your Google account as usual, then go to your Google account's setting from here.

Then under Personal info & privacy > Your personal info, make sure your Name and Nickname are properly assigned as preferred. Once done, go back to see your YouTube comments and verify if the ID has been changed to the Name you set.
