Change WordPress Mail From Name

Change WordPress Mail From Name

Want to change the email from name from “WordPress” for system generated emails?  Add this bit to your functions.php file:

add_filter(‘wp_mail_from_name’, ‘tbs_wp_mail_from_name’);

function tbs_wp_mail_from_name($name) {
    return ‘Your From Name Here’;

If you are not working with your own custom theme, be sure to add this code instead to a child theme.  More on child themes coming.  In the meantime, your can educate yourself here.
