Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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:

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