I would like to start using my full name as part of my online brand...
However, with HP, there's no way to change the username (and I understand the reasons), but would love to see the possibility to change the "display name" on the profile, like what wordpress does...
Start a new account with your real name, and then move your articles over one at a time. All you'll lose is pageview numbers, your monetary things will still be working, and Google will give your articles more attention because they'll be "new" articles. Good luck!
..and the age of your Hubs, and any backlinks they've earned.
Google does give brand new Hubs a "freshness" boost, but it's only temporary. In the longer run, Google respects age on evergreen topics. It also values backlinks, which take time to build up.
If Jacob's Hubs have only been in existence for a few months, and don't have many backlinks, he can easily move them. But if they're almost a year old and are linked, I wouldn't be moving them.

I just went to Google to search my URL (cardia.hubpages.com) to see how it ranks, and I noticed that articles and other things by another Hubber who has a really similar name to mine (she has an extra letter in it)is showing up, and not mine at all.I was just wondering if this would hurt my...

I recently started writing on Daily Two Cents to mitigate the whack-ness that is now Bubblews. Is Daily Two Cents a viable way to create quality backlinks back to my blog and HubPages articles? For instance if I wrote a small piece about global warming and link it back to my meatier hub...
