What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I was able to change my name on all Stack Exchange sites, but not on the main profile at http://stackexchange.com itself.

Is there a ways to do the change on http://stackexchange.com as well?

The central Stack Exchange profile is synchronized with your oldest profile; it'll update automatically.

So, since your first ever Stack Exchange profile was created on Stack Overflow, that's the profile it'll synchronize with.

You can force a manual sync by clicking on the Sync with oldest profile link on the right-hand side of your network profile page:

sync link

That's right underneath the "About Me" section on the right-hand side (empty in your case).
