    Hello I recently moved out of my home, and my Apple ID still uses my mom's name so whenever I send an email with the whole new Icloud email it says its from my mothers name. Is there a way I can change it to mine?

    You can create a new iCloud account just for yourself, so that your e-mails get sent through that while you continue using your old Apple ID with iTunes (apps, music, etc).

    You can change your name. Go to appleid.apple.com and manage your account.
