    Unfortunately, once a profile has been created, the profile name itself cannot be changed.

    You can, however, create a new account or change the "real name" field on your existing account.
    If you close your existing account, you can use the same email address for the new account as well.

    If you would like to close your HubPages account, please sign in to the account that you would like to close, navigate to the Close Account page, and follow the instructions.

    If you are referring to you HP name you can't change it once the account has been created. You'd have to create a new account.
    On the other hand if it's your personal nickname they're usually {given} to people at an early age. Oftentimes it's one's parents or other family members that call the individual by that name.
    Odds are you're not going to convince them to start calling by another name. The best way to change your nickname (outside of family) is to introduce yourself to people by saying: My name is such and such but just about everyone calls me blah blah."
    Note: If these people ever come around your family and hear them call you a different nickname they may also start calling you by that as well. However the longer someone has been calling you by one name the less likely they'll change. People are creatures of habit.
    It's also not uncommon for people to be known by different names depending on who they are around.
