Hi, I would like to know if its possible to delete the middle name in my paypal. I accidentally placed it along with my first name.
I can provide a government ID for the first requirement but Im not married, and didn't have a legal change name (so I cant provide a deed poll either).
Great question! Yes, this can be done, but you'll need to contact us directly to have the name updated. I hope this helps! 🙂

I am having this issue as well.
It was not mentioned during sign-up that middle names would be revealed upon transaction, and I would not have found out had I not tested payment request with a close friend.
If this is a business account-only feature, I do not find it good practice to have middle names revealed without user consent for any account type.
@PayPal_AshleyM , is it possible to contact your superiors if users could be given the option to hide our middle names under settings?
I will list further points if required.
No luck on my end, no matter how much I try to fiddle with it.
There has been no word from @PayPal_AshleyM nor anybody on behalf of Paypal either.
I've tried to look for contact numbers to speak to someone directly despite what @BroccoliRing had dealt with; however, the link AshleyM provided and the Contact button would both simply redirect me to the search page.
I presume help lines are inactive due to Covid but it seems this help section has just been abandoned outright.
I think I will delete my account once I use up remaining change and find service elsewhere, although many aren't so lucky to have that option.
A shame. 😞
