How to change Google account name?

I was trying to find answer with Google, but got many not actual information since Google has done many changes in its user interface.

  • Are you referring to what’s in front of @gmail.com? – Daniel B Sep 16 '15 at 9:26
  • No, I don't need to change e-mail, I need to change just surname – vico Sep 16 '15 at 9:28
  • For me, it’s in the Google+ profile (click on name). Unfortunately, I don’t have a non-G+ account, so I don’t know where else it would be. – Daniel B Sep 16 '15 at 9:50
