Is there any way I can change my old username (Butterfly67) to the actual name that I have on my hubs now (Jackie Grant)?
I'm assuming not but thought I might as well ask.
Your assumption is correct; the username cannot be changed. Wish it could!
You can add a "real name" that will show on your profile, but you can't change your username.
I find it odd that when setting up a profile we are cautioned to use our real name and yet there are numerous contributors who have set up profiles with names that are clearly unreal. There should be consistency, in which case everyone should have the opportunity to change the original name that s/he registered.
We encourage users to use a real (or real sounding) name on HubPages, but we don't force them to, so some writers still decide to use more fanciful usernames. And, as Butterfly67 mentions, it used to be more acceptable in the online writing to use abstract screen names and handles, so many of the more unusual ones belong to authors who have been on the site for years.
I think it was a lot different 7+ years ago when I joined to be honest.

I understand that we can't change our usernames, but we should be allowed to make tweaks that don't change our domain structure.For example, my name is marriedwithdebt - this is how it shows up on HP.If I had known better when I created my account, I would have done Married With Debt or...
