    Welcome to the forum.

    Unfortunately, your sentence does not make any sense. Can you try to explain it using different words?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes, i can describe you like that:

    I want to say that i want to change a name for my kids, and i describe what name should be for who, so i want to say that:

    Michael will be Jack
    Job will be Frank

    And i want to make it in professional sentence :)

    I am guessing that you mean:

    We suggest that Michael change his name to Jack and Job change his name to Frank.


    ​This does seem rather an odd suggestion.

    No,no, because I only suggest what names they should have, i dont want they change name ,i suggest what name they should have
    For example
    We suggest changing a name for this banana on xyz and for this orange on zyx. - something like that

    I have made multiple corrections to your two posts. I still don't understand what you're trying to say. You say you don't want to change your children's names but then you suggest what their names should be. Do you mean that you regret giving them the names you gave them? Now that they're older, do you think it seems like a different name would suit them better?

    Re: Is it a correct sentence ?

    Okey, maybe i gave you wrong example.

    Forgot about the children, now i will give another example:

    Imagine that I have shop with computer, and they have weird names for example
    computer123534 is name esgfh
    computer242345 is name grgee

    And in this sentence i want to say, that I suggest changing their names which will be for computer123534 - samsung, and for computer: computer242345 will be apple,

    And now i want to say that in cool way:P

    Make sure you capitalize the pronoun I. Ems pointed that out to you above.

    Also, do not leave a space before your end punctuation.
