I can't seem to change the name on my Gmail account and it

Customer Question

I can't seem to change the name on my Gmail account and it doesn't tell me when I'll be able to change it again
JA: How long have you had this issue with your Gmail account?
Customer: I think maybe two months now?
JA: How do you access your email most often? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?
Customer: Phone and web browser
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I've tried changing it and when I click the link for it to explain why I can't change it other than you've changed it too recently it sends me to a help list that isn't very useful.
JA: Anything else you want the email expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No I think that's it. the only thing I get is a little red window that pops up saying I've changed the name too recently
