To change name in Valorant, you need to adjust it on your Riot account. To do that, start by logging in to the Riot website here using the same details you use on Valorant. You may need to enter a code sent to your email when doing this. Once logged in, click the Riot ID button to be shown a page with your ID, which should match your Valorant name.

If possible, you’ll be able to change name in Valorant and other Riot Games releases on this page by clicking the pencil icon. However, if you’ve only recently created your Riot account, you’ll find that you need to wait a month before making any change to your Riot ID. That’s bad news for LadieSlaya69, but we’re pretty sure that they can suffer mild embarrassment for a month at least. Check the text under your ID to see how long left you need to wait. Once that time is up, you should be able to change your name.
