|How To Change How Your Name Appears in Google
Passed on from My GoogleHow To Build Your Google Profile
On April 21, 2009 Google introduced a tool, called Google Profile, that allows you to take a little control over what comes up when people search your name. Google Profiles will place your profile at the bottom of the search results for your name if you are one of the top matches. Read on to learn how to take advantage of this new feature.
Essentially, you go to Google Profiles
(must have or create a Google account) and add a bunch 'o stuff. You don't have to add pictures or fill out all the fields, but at least add the name(s) most associated with you.
The service just started two days ago and I don't recommend you fill everything out right away. You have some control over basic info, which seems useful to add.
