As the phone Carrier company maintains the Caller ID, there is no way you can possibly change your Caller ID. Unless you use third-party apps like T-Mobile or AT&T to modify your Caller ID.
Why Does Caller ID Display the Wrong Name?
Your iPhone might show you inappropriate data and that might even happen with the person whom you call, this is only because of outdated carrier information and configuration or incorrect format option.
You can head to Carrier settings to make changes to it. Also, the Caller ID format differs from carrier to carrier and the data might change throughout the path because calls may travel across several networks.
