How To Merge Facebook Pages With Different Names
You can not merge two Facebook pages with different names. The names of the Facebook pages you want to merge must be exactly the same. So, before you think of merging two Facebook pages, you must change the name of the page to tally with the page you want to merge it with. Because without doing that, Facebook won’t approve your request to merge them together.
For example, if you have a page with the name “Unique Clothes and Bags” and you want to merge with another page of yours with the name “Flora Unique Wears”, you must change the name of the former to “Flora Unique Wears.” Both pages must have the same appellation before embarking on the merging process.

Merge Facebook Page With Different Accounts.
You cannot merge a Facebook page with different accounts. Even if you own the two accounts, one of the accounts must be the admin of the two Facebook pages you want to merge because the merge process will be done by an account and not with different accounts.
Why Merge Facebook Pages?
Merging multiple pages together has lots of advantages. I know it can be tiring and stressful to manage multiple Facebook pages. So, to save you the stress and help you focus, you can merge two duplicated pages together since they represent the same business.
Another merit of merging Facebook pages together is that it increases your followers. Imagine having two duplicated pages, one with 6.5k followers and another with 4.9k followers. After you merge them together, you’ll have a page of over 10k followers, which is one of the requirements for Facebook Page monetization.
When you merge Facebook pages, does the content go away?

If I merge Facebook pages, what’s the URL?
The URL of the page you want to keep will remain. It’s the URL of the merged page that will no longer be accessible. You should know that you can set or change your URL after you merge your pages. If you want to get a unique URL for your Facebook page, you need to set your username. Once you set your username for the already merged page, your page can be accessed with it.
For example, after updating your username to be FloraxxxClothingsh, the extension of your url will look like this: “www.facebook.com/FloraxxxClothingsh”
Is there a way to remove accidentally merged Facebook pages?
