Change your name in Mac Mail (displayed from emails you send)

When you add an email account in Mac Mail, your name, or "display name" as it will appear to your email recipients, is part of the information you supply, which will be saved under your email account profile alongside email address, password, etc. But this is something you can easily change after the fact, as this tutorial explains.

Change display name for an email account in Apple Mail

Tip: it might be a good idea to let others know about your new display name in Mac Mail, since your email recipients may be expecting emails from a certain name, or create email rules to handle emails coming from your old display name, etc. Since most people will work with your email address when creating mail filters, this should normally not matter. But a typical case where changing name for your email account can create confusion is when your recipients try to sort their email messages by From field, or "Sent by" - if your new name doesn't start in the same alphabetical order as your previous display name, your emails to that person will appear in two separate groups in an email program sorted by Sender's Name!
