How does one change MNU when it is in a profile?

I clicked on edit but was unable to remove or change the unk for LNAB.  Does it need to be completed by a ranger or perhaps a project?

The LNAB can only be changed by the profile manager.

Thanks for the quick response.  I should have remembered that.
No problem, we all have bad day's sometimes.

You need to be on the trusted list of the profile in order to change the Last Name At Birth (LNAB). I would sent a private message to the profile manager to suggest the change and being added to the trusted list for the profile. You should offer what source you are using for the proposed name change.

Thank you.  I will send a request as you suggest.
I don't think it's just the Trusted List.  You actually have to be the Profile Manager to change the LNAB.  Don't you?
I contacted the profile manager.  Will just have to wait and see.

There appears to be a conflict

"Changing an LNAB

To change a Last Name at Birth simply click the "edit" link next to it on the edit page.

To do this you need be on the Trusted List. This is true even for Open profiles because of the special significance of LNABs."


I'm not on the trusted list and I've already left a message for the PM so I will just leave a comment on the profile. Thanks for everyone's help.
