Did you make a mistake with naming your Facebook Fan Page?
Normally you can only change the name of your Facebook Fan Page if you have under 200 likes, Click Here but if you already have over 200 likes for your page there is there is a work-around.
You can now change your Facebook Page Name, BUT A WARNING: don’t make a mistake, Facebook will only give you one chance!
When you go to the link it will ask for your current page name and then your Desired Page name, so make sure you get it right!
You have a choice of reasons for name change, if its because your business name has changed they will ask you for documentation which is a bit of a run around so it might be best to say missspelt or other….this is what I got back when I changed mine.
We may be able to assist you with this request. In order to update your Page name, please make sure to provide the following information:
If you selected, “My Page name has changed,” please make sure that you have attached documentation showing your new business name as well as its address. An example of this is a utility or phone bill.
If you selected, “My Page name is misspelled,” sit tight and we will get to your request as soon as possible.
Please note these changes may take up to 3 days to process. We apologize for any inconvenience.

And yes it took 3 days to change. I had initially had a long Page name and wanted to change it to something shorter.
The instructions below are the same from the link above.
Update: 21st August 2012: The instructions above include changing your username..(vanity url) and the name of your page. You can change both, best to keep both similar, Facebook won’t allow you to change your username or page name more than once. You can’t have more than 200 likes to change your username (url)
Some people have advised that they needed to change their pages category to be able to see the ability to change your Page Name or Url. Edit Page – Update Info – Category – Try using Brands and Products/Products and services.
If your page doesn’t comply with the Guidelines the option to change your pages name will not be available.
