Elizabethan and Jacobean playing companies took their name from their sponsor who was a royal or noble person. In 1594, the Burbage brothers with some others (including Shakespeare) obtained the support of Baron Hunsdon, the Lord Chamberlain of England, who became their patron and named their company. The company did really well, and when Queen Elizabeth died in 1603, the new King took over sponsorship of the company, which became the King's Men.
That's easy! They changed it to The King's Men
They are more commonly remembered as the King's Men.
Lord Chamberlains Men and Kings Men
They did not. They were formed as the Lord Chamberlain's Men in 1594. Their name changed to the King's Men (they did not have any choice in their name) when the King became their patron nine years later in 1603.
The Lord Chamberlain's men were an acting company in London with which William Shakespeare was involved. They changed their name to the King's Men in 1603 when they were sponsored by the new king King James the First.
Shakespeare was a member of the company. The Lord Chamberlain's Men was the name of the acting company he belonged to from 1594.
Lord Chamberlains men
The Lord Chamberlain ceased to be their patron in 1603 on the death of the Queen. The new king took up sponsorship of the company, so the name of the company was changed to the King's Men. This was not a decision of the actors; it was a natural consequence of the change of patron.
The Lord Chamberlain's men changed their name because they gained the patronage of the reigning monarch King James I thus becoming The King's Men.
no there not sorry
He joined the Lord Chamberlains men which later changed their name to the Kings Men.

Lord Chamberlains Men
They were a theatre company. They put on plays.
They were actors, so you will not be surprised to hear that they acted in the plays.
Shakespeare did not make the change. Even if the company could have the right to change the name, Shakespeare did not have the right to speak for the company--Richard Burbage was its leader not Shakespeare. The name was changed by King James I. When he came to the throne, he took over patronage of the company. When the patron changed, the name changed.
the kings men
It didn't. The Lord Chamberlain's Men was not a theatre. It was a company of actors and other men who put on plays. They were formed in 1594. They took their name from their patron--by law, acting companies of this kind had to have a patron--who was the Lord Chamberlain. In 1603, they got a new patron and a new name, although it was still the same group of actors. Their new patron was King James I, and so their new name was The King's Men. There never was such a thing as the King's Men Theatre.
Shakespeare was a charter member of the Lord Chamberlain's Men when they formed in 1594. He stayed with them through their name change in 1603 to the end of his career when he retired around 1613. In other words he was with the company almost twenty years.
The owners of the Globe theatre were all members of the Lord Chamberlain's Men, including Richard and Cuthbert Burbage and William Shakespeare.
