    How do I go about modifying my current username and coming up with a different new username?

    There is no way to do that via the WordPress dashboard. You'd need to edit your database manually to do that.

    The alternative if you're not comfortable editing your DB, is, create a new user as an admin with the username you want and set the password. Then, logout, and login as the new user. Delete the old user and assign all posts, etc. to the new user (you'll be prompted to do that).
