Hello @Nancy Livingston_1
Where are you seeing the wrong name for your mother? Is it in the Family Tree? If so, you can follow @1ByrdLady's advice to correct the error.
If you are seeing the wrong name in a historical record, it may or may not be something that can be edited.
If you can provide some more details, we can advise you further.
Since Family Tree is an open-edit, collaborative effort, everyone is free to make changes to the information. If you have found a mistake, we encourage you to make the necessary corrections, providing a concise reason statement and as much documentation as possible. Reason statements, record sources attached, notes and even a brief life sketch that prove your conclusions about vital events and relationships are ways to ensure the accuracy of the Tree and help prevent others from making incorrect changes.
