Purchased Kindle Fire for son but is registered to me, how do I change the data to reflect my son's name instead of mine?

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 25, 2012 3:26:05 PM PST
It should be under "manage Kindle" online. You can edit the name that the Kindle shows on the top of the screen and in the "send to" selections when you make a purchase.

Go to "manage Your Kindle" ( and then "Manage Your Devices" (link is on the left of that page). On the "Devices" page you'll see the names of all your registered Kindles and devices. Click "edit" next to the name you want to change to change the name. Once you've done that, connect the Fire to the internet and sync it from the settings menu. The name on the Fire might take a little time to update.
