    If you mean the sender name (that appears on the From: line in your email), to change it on your Mac Mail, go to icloud.com, sign into your account, open Mail, click the gear shaped icon on the bottom left and choose Preferences, go to the Accounts tab and enter the name you want to use in the Full Name field and click Done.  Then quit Mail on your Mac and re-open it.  Your new From name should now appear in the drop-down list when you compose a new email.

     

    (To change the sender name on and iOS device, go to Settings>Mail,Contacts,Calendars...tap iCloud under Accounts, tap your iCloud account at the top of the next screen, tap Mail at the bottom of the next screen, then enter the name you want to use in the Name field at the top.)

    Thank you for your help, actually it is solved on the email, but the same thing is happening when i have an invitee on the Calendar. Do you know why the account is using the billing name as the default name?

    Sorry but I'm not sure about that.  I haven't seen any documentation on how the sender name is selected for calendar invitations.  I would have thought it would use the name listed in the "You Name" field for your iCloud ID.  You could try editing that field at https://appleid.apple.com and see if it changes anything.
