Page names can't include:

  • Terms or phrases that may be abusive or violate someone's rights.
  • Improper capitalization (example: tHe best CaFE). Page names must use grammatically correct capitalization and may not include all capital letters, except for acronyms.
  • Symbols (example: ® ) or unnecessary punctuation.
  • Long descriptions, such as a slogan (example: The Best Cafe - We serve the best coffee in town). People who manage Pages can add this information to a Page's About section.
  • Any variation of the word "Facebook." Learn more at the Brand Resource Center.
  • Misleading words. If a Page isn't the official Page of a brand, place, organization or public figure, the Page name can't mislead others into thinking it's an official Page or that it's managed by an authorized representative.

Page names can't consist only of:

  • Generic words (example: Pizza). Pages must be managed by official representatives of the topics they're about.
  • Generic geographic locations (example: New York). However, you can create a Page name for an organization that represents a geographic location. For example, "New York City – Mayor's Office" and "Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain" are acceptable Page names.
