Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

This question already has an answer here:

I am new to Stack Exchange. I have just created an account on Stack Overflow. I want to change the name in my profile so it is not just a user number.

Is there any way to do this?

Go to profile and above your [empty] bio it should say edit. Click. And then edit your "Display Name".

Sure, you can. You can edit your current displayed username by edit the "Displayed Name" field on your edit account profile page. You can change your displayed username whenever you want. And it will be a history for the change of your displayed username on your profile.
