    You cannot change your user name on your own. This is in order to keep user identities fixed and assure that the name is associated to your previous posts on Physics Forums. If you would like to change your name, you therefore need to contact a mentor and give them a valid reason for wanting to change your user name and what you would like to change it to. It is then up to the mentors to decide whether or not this change would be appropriate and if the reason is strong enough to warrant the change.
