Have you ever tried to remove your last name from your Facebook profile? If yes, then you might have failed because Facebook doesn’t allow every one to remove their last names. But what if you need to remove your last name even though Facebook is restricting to do that.

Yeah, it sounds awkward, right? But this is the right way to perform our trick.
