Go to this link https://askubuntu.com/users/606065/user606065. You'll see Edit profile and Settings Tab there. On Edit profile page, You can change your name. Save button is at the bottom of the page.

Note 1: You can only change your username once every 30 days
Note 2: You can just visit this link https://askubuntu.com/users/current to go to the profile of currently logged in user. (Thanks to Dan)

  • Note that you can only change your username once every 30 days.

  • You can use askubuntu.com/users/current as a link so anyone clicking on it would open their own profile page
