Login to your AOL account and click on the Options dropdown in the top right corner; select "Mail Settings", and choose the "Compose" options on the left of the next page. Scroll down to the bottom and look for the Display Name section (second from last).

Update your name, type a brand new first / last name in the text field, or enter your nickname. The name will appear in the exact same order as you type it. Then, click on the "Save Settings" button at the bottom. Your new From name will appear from the next email you send onward!
