    It has been done but I'm not sure how - someone will come along who knows how to do it.  

    I think it would be good to put in your Personal Profile that you used to be called Lucky3, as just occasionally we get people who try to masquerade as others, or even as several others, in order to cause mischief.  If you put in in your profile it would be clear to everyone that you'd not changed your name for the wrong reason image

    I think you just go into settings lucky, and type over your existing name and save the changes...

    I changed my screen name as I put my real name on to start with...image

    Hi Lucky, it's easy to do, I changed mine from Tracey-newbie. Go into settings and your profile, you'll see the top box says screen name, just change it to what you want.

    As Dove said put it on your profile info or start a thread to let everyone know.  I did have it on my profile for a while until everyone got used to my new name image

    I changed mine too, when I first joined I put my real name in, like Victoria Sponge did.

    In fact I've changed mine twice because it gave me Tracey5 to start with but I never used it image

    Hi Cangrandmafixiit - you've done it.  Hurrah!  Like the name image

    I suspect some of the more idle typists may abbreviate you to Cangrandma image  or that might just be because we're friendly souls image
