MediaWiki does not allow changing of usernames. I could edit the
database to reflect the change, but I'm not sure how that would affect
links to your current pages, etc. I suggest that you create your
preferred username, and move your content from your old user's home page
to your new username. Once you've done that, we can delete your old user.
