Can I choose what name appears for each family member?

Yes - sometimes you want to give a name that reflects their relationship to you (Granny, Dad etc), or perhaps you have two people in your extended family with the same name and need to distinguish them, particularly when you're being notified of likes and comments.

First, go to the Manage Contacts section of the menu:

You will then see all your contacts in a list, for example, this is what you would see with a single family member (Sarah) having access to your timeline:

Tap on Sarah and you'll see the timeline permissions you've given her.:

Tap on Nickname and you can change her name as it appears for you.
