I have a SQL server 2005 database where the name was changed.  I need to determine when the name was changed and by whom.  I know how to find these values for Tables, but this is the database name that was changed.

If you did not restarted server open your SSMS, right click server, select reports, select standard reports and check "Schema Change History" standard SQL 2005 report.

You could also add your DDL triggers at server level and DB level to log all these into your own user table - please see my solution at:
