No, unfortunately that is impossible. You can open a second account, if you wish.
I wanted to alter mine but i have to grin & bear it !
I am afraid to open a new one, then I will lose the followers I have now. It just sucks...
If I did decide to open a new account, would I be able to use the same adsense account I have now?
I think your user name is just fine, not that my opinion necessarily carries much weight.
Yes, you can only have one AdSense account, and your current ID is what you will be using under any new HubPages account.
thanks Website Examiner. I just didn't feel that I would be taken seriously with that as the name everyone would see. I appreciate your opinion. When I created my account I didn't know that my username would be the name my writing would be published under. I thought it was the name I would use only to log into my account then I would have my real publishers name when I was in the site.
There's nothing wrong with your name, but if you don't happen to prefer what you're using you may want to do the switch now, before you get too many more Hubs and/or followers into things. I've been a big one for just whipping up some easy-to-think of version of my name, only to regret what I went with later. I'm wondering if you write a Hub like, "Why choosing your user name carefully is important", and then mention (prominently) in it that you're doing the switch, whether most of followers would follow your new name? Just a thought.
I regret the user name I chose when I didn't really know what kind of writing I wanted to do (or could do) with the HubPages account. Now, I have a whole "hobby-writing" (separate from my "real" work) "identity" that's earns regularly. I'm trying to figure out whether to abandon that user name, phase it in with something else, etc. My user name has irked me for 3 years (), but there was a time when I didn't care that it did. Now I do. Anyway, I'm just saying if you think it's going to bother you, better to switch now than let things go on much longer.
Julie is a beautiful name, and certainly carries some sentimental value for me
My real name is Julissa but I like my family and friends to call me Julie...
she is the second of the twin Julie2
User name Julie has already been taken. So Julie2.
If any one join with the name saleheensblog2 then he should have been brother of the saleheensblog.
Julie, you can maintain two or more accounts simultaneously. So no one can prevent you from starting a new account, then you can make it your primary account if and when you are happy with the following and hubs there.
Thanks again Website Examiner. You do make a point. I will consider that.
You are welcome. Just as an aside, I came to think about this hubber, Katiem2, whom I find quite comparable to yours screen name-wise. She is well respected, active, 949 followers. Nobody seems to mind the user name.
I feel exactly the same! It scares me that my real name is just floating out there but oh well!..
My real name has been on the net for 20 years. When I designed and published my first blog site (before the word "blog" ever existed or before blog software was ever thought of), being "out there" on the net for all to see as I am (or as I was...LOL) was something I had to deal with. And I've never had a problem.
ummm, not sure I know what that is, this...LOL
I'm glad to hear you've had good experiences Donna Ferrier. What is grey matter, thisisoli?
Gray matter is a major component of the central nervous system.
you are too silly salheensblog! LOL. I think he mean't a program or site. I dont know! I'm lost....
Touch wood I have had no threat etc...in 3 plus years...
I have been online since the eighties, and always used a "username" - never my given name. It is interesting to see all the comments from other women, particularly Donna Ferrier. It took a real leap of faith for me to even put my name on my profile page, but it hasn't led to any more nonsense than any other username I've ever used
Yeah, I signed on when AOL was still charging $2.95 per hour...LOL. Everyone used to talk about how big their AOL bills were. One gal had a $1300 bill once just for one month of AOL.
I've always used usernames in chat forums (2D and 3D), and I was always DonnaLuise. I have my spelled out name on blogs, press releases, books, and other writing-type stuff, though.
Donna Ferrier, I remember, thats when we had to connect our computers to our telephone line and wait for dial up! ughhh. I hated that! LOL. You couldn't use the computer and telephone at the same time...
Oh, but you forgot the best part! When all of AOL's competitors started giving unlimited usage for a flat fee, people jumped off of AOL like fleas jumping off a dog...LOL. But then AOL went to the flat fee too, and then everyone came back. The problem was, AOL didn't have enough lines for the massive resurgence, so every time we tried to sign on, we got repeated busy signals. It was a royal mess for awhile.
And you can call me Donna. Everyone does.
Ouch! I was lucky enough to have a free account through a computer job at the university. It was great, but it rather spoiled me. Later, I was stuck with dial-up long after high-speed (DSL and ADSL?) came into common usage because I lived out of town. That was painful. Is good now, but old habits die hard, even with SPAM filters.

Hi I have noticed that there are, on the Internet, several other people, known as 'Trish_M', so I think that I would like to change my user name. I know that this isn't possible, at present, but I believe that I read that, in the future, we might be able to add our real names to our user names. Is...

Actually it is my name, but now I'm hoping that song is stuck in your head. Uh... HP's changed my name on my profile page. Kinda weird. Im not sure how it happened or why, but the name on my account is "Sed-me" and in that little fill-in-the-blank-real-name-spot, I had my real name which...

I find it quite intriguing and often wonder how a user name is chosen...some of the names are quite easy to guess others I bet have most likely funny little anecdotes to go with the choice...My user name is really very ordinary Zsuzsy being a Hungarian form of Suzanne and the Bee well, my teenage...

What is the meaning behind your user name?Some people ask me about mine, MrsMamaCow. Mrs is because I'm married. Mama Cow because I have a pet pot belly pig and when she was a baby she used to sleep in the house. When she got too big for this, we made her an area outside but thought she'd be lonely...

Is it best to use a pen name or your real name on HP, and how easy is it to change your user name?I am considering a change of name here on HP, and wondering what the implications would be. Has anybody done it, or have an opinion about it?
