Need name blocked when I send a text

I need to send a text to another Verizon customer. I don't care if my number is shown but I don't want my name. How can I be sure my name does not appear. Not playing a childish game. This is a serious matter.

How are you determining that your name is being sent with the text?  Is it that the receiver of the text (or your test texts) have you as a contact and their Messaging app is pulling your name from their contact list?  When I receive texts from people not in my contact list, only their number is displayed.

We're more than happy to look into this for you, jjcotton. What is the messaging application that you're using?
