The name on the PayPal account should indeed be the same as that on your bank account otherwise the transaction will not be completed and you will even be penalized. I know this because I saw the warning when I was transferring my PayPal balance to my bank account (which will take 4-5 days to process). Anyway, I agree that you should just create another PayPal account with the correct name and then simply transfer your balance from the other account to your new account. However, I suggest that you create the other account from a different IP address. PayPal prohibits account holders from having more than one personal account although you can have one personal and one business account. But still, to be on the safe side, just create your new PayPal account from a different computer and a different IP address.

Name of the person. Since PayPal uses the email address as account ID, it is obviously NOT the same as the bank account. And other contact info in your bank account is not accessible to PayPal. So, it is only the person's name in both PayPal and the bank account that has to be the same. This is understandable or expected because the bank usually conducts identity checks by requiring official identification like driver's license, passport, etc. And your name is always the same in all your ID's.
