Colin,
Yes you can change an name as it appears on IMDb....my answer is general because your question is.

If i had to guess, you added someone's credit to IMDb, probably created a new name page in the process, but then found out that he is already listed on IMDb but under a new name?

If this is even partially right then there is a much easier way to do that - and a much more correct one too! Of course maybe it was his first credit so the method would be different.

The key thing is that on IMDb the "main" name is the one used for the page, but that if the person is credited under a different name (even a typo) that the data be entered with that as a note.

The answer to your question is "yes" and data can be edited via the button at the foot of any page....more specifics will get you more specifics if you need them.
