How to Change Your Nickname on Discord Servers?

The nickname feature is only available for servers. You can customize your name differently in each server that you are in. Some servers may have disabled the permission for changing nicknames. You won’t be able to change your nickname without permission from the server’s administrators.

The nickname and the username on discord are two different names. Usernames work a bit differently than the nicknames in discord. Your friend list will be able to see the username in DMs and friend lists. Unlike the nickname, you cannot have different usernames for different servers.
