Unfortunately, it isn't possible to send a message from a name as phone calls and text messages always come from phone numbers. There are two different kinds of phone numbers: regular ten-digit numbers like the one you have on your cell phone, and short coded, which are special five- or six-digit numbers like ours. For a message to appear from a name it must be stored in your phone’s address book. You will notice when you receive a call or text message from a person who is not in your phone book, it appears as their ten-digit number (not a name), since it is not stored in your phone. The same applies to a short code.
