Somehow my phone started calling my friends/family with displaying private name rather than my phone number. I don't know how I changed it.

If it's an android, it would be under call settings->additional settings. Set call display to network determined.
On iphone I believe it's under settings->(call/phone?) Turn show my number on.

iPhone is Settings->Phone->Show My Caller ID. Then there is a toggle to turn on/off
