I am not a business. I am an individual. For some reason when one googles my name - a knowledge graph pops up displaying incorrect information about me, namely, my "name" which google incorrectly lists.

The incorrect listing was my birth name, one I legally changed over six years ago, and do not use in my professional or daily life, so it is troubling and a little upsetting to me to see this show up on google.

I have located the source of the incorrect data to a website called <snip>. However, I can not delete / edit it as it is read only and I've never been a member. I have reported this error several times to google via "feedback" under the knowledge graph, but no luck.

Please, please help!

I would suggest requesting Google to remove your name if you are based in Europe. See [google.co.uk...]
