I'm thinking you will NOT be able to change your user name. My wife just signed up here two days ago, and there was a specific warning to be careful about that--because it was the one thing you could never, ever change.
The only way to work around that that I know of would be to simply give up on the WQAINDA account and create a new account using your real name. That would mean coming up with a different email address, since the computer only accepts one account per address.
However (since I've been wrong before), it might be a good idea to check with the Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) first, before doing anything rash.
OOPS! I didn't realize I was still signed is as Pamdora--that's my wife. She's a new member here, and I check her work just to help her out--but she doesn't HAVE a wife! LOL!
Anyway, WQAINDIA, the "Pamdora" advice was really coming from Ghost32, 5 years on HP with a 97 HubScore, NOT from Pamdora, 2 days on HP with a 7 HubScore!
(Thought that might influence your comfort level a bit.)
I think Ghost is correct. You can create new (multiple) account(s) here (using the same Adsense etc.) but you can't change an account name once opened.

Something I've noticed on HP over the last few years. Certain people (like myself) use their own names to be identified as hubbers. Some use some cloak and dagger terrorist/CIA codename as their hubhandle. I sometimes...
