    Been loving my new iphone 6s and my wife and I use Air Drop all the time to trade pictures of the kids.

    I my 6+ last year and the 5s before that, my name always showed up as me, when my wife would send me pictures.

    Now, though it works, my wife's name comes up and when she selects that, I get the info on my phone, so it's clearly me. But, nothing has changed...except my phone.

    We don't share the same icloud account. In the about section, it's my name. In icloud, it's my name and icloud address, in my contact card, it's my name.

    I can't figure out where this is coming from and how to get it changed.

    Thanks in advance.

    check settings > general > about > Name. Airdrop on the iPhone usually pulls the name from here.

    Thanks. Sorry that it wasn't more clear, but in my 4th paragraph, I do state, in the about section, it's my name. So, I have checked that and it's fine. Thank you for looking and replying though. I just want to get this fixed.
