I have found some people are writing their profile name in fancy and stylish font. How do I write a name or add some stylish font to the profile?

Facebook does not officially support changing the font on your profile. Some people manage to make it look like this by putting in script characters (Hindi, etc.) that look vaguely similar to English letters, or by combining Unicode characters.

But this does have some downsides:

  1. A lot of people find it annoying.
  2. People searching for your name won't see it, because your name in Facebook's database won't actually be the characters of your name that people would be searching for.

I would suggest that you not do this, but if you really want to, you'll have to look for special characters that look like letters.

I don't know of any easy way to do it... you just have to open up the character map and look for characters that might work. –  nhinkle Aug 28 '10 at 7:06
