Viber - how change contact name?

I have my daughter in my phone contacts under her own name and also under ICE - In Case of Emergency, alongside her brother.

After a phone reset recently (android) she's coming up in Viber as ICE.... and I want to change it to her own name.

I've done this before but I'm blowed if I can remember how...

Can't find anything useful on the web.

Not 100% certain Jean as I ditched Viber a few years ago.

If possible just delete her from Contacts and enter her again as a new contact with preferred name changes?

I believe Viber takes its information from your contacts, i.e. anyone who has downloaded the Viber app and is in your contacts will appear in your Viber contact list.

Problem is, Drew, that she's in my contacts twice, once under her own name and once under ICE. I don't want to delete either of these. Tho I'm just thinking, if I delete the ICE temporarily, then viber might be forced to use the other? Then I could re-add ICE.

I'll give it a go.

And that worked!

As soon as I'd deleted the ICE from contacts, viber flipped over to use her name.

When adding ICE back in I noticed the facility to make a group in contacts so I've done that - which presumably means her number isn't duplicated under two different contact names, it's just her named number being used twice.... If that makes sense!
