    My wife and I both use the same Apple ID. Is there any way to change her contact name and picture on her phone so that when I or anyone else tries to send her an airdrop link/picture, it shows her info instead?

    Get her a separate id for it. Leave the other one for apps, music, etc.
    Also, FaceTime!

    How do you use 2 separate apple id's for different things?

    Shared AppleID for AppStore (so you don't have to buy apps twice), shared calendars, shared notes, shared Photostreams

    Separate AppleID for iMessage, FaceTime, iCloud (so you can have separate backups), FindMyFriends now requires separate AppleID's

    Ok, that's exactly what I want to do. But how do I make another Apple ID and how do I designate what apps use which ID?

    First question is whose email is the current one. The other person should be the one to make the second one. Just logical that way

    Log out of FaceTime, messages and iCloud. Be sure to say keep data. Under iCloud for sure there is a create Apple ID. After that is done, log into FaceTime and messages with new id.

    We have 2 iCloud accounts but one iTunes account. You set them up separately.

    Use the shared id that you use for iTunes purchasers in iTunes. Then go to the iCloud settings and set up a new iCloud account on one phone. Now you have separate useable ids, but you share purchases.
