    You can’t change your user name (no one can), but you can change your display name. Go to your profile – click on Edit (top right) – then add a first and/or last name to those fields, click update.

    Then click edit again and in the dropdown, select the name you want to display. Click update.

    Hi WPyongi,

    Thank you for responding to me and suggesting me a way to change my display name. 🙂

    Cheers,

    This is a 5 month old topic but the answer remains the same.
