Are there Any Limitations to Change the Group Name on Facebook?

Facebook only lets you modify the name of a group once every 28 days, so be careful what you pick. When you change your name, you only have about 30 minutes to undo it before it becomes final for 28 days. This is in case you make a typo.

Also, groups with over 5,000 members cannot change group names directly.
