    Yes, but you can't change by yourself. You have to contact the support and explain the reason why you want to change, if they decide it's a fair reason they will allow to change it.

    I know a couple of people that were able to change that way. I belive if it's the first time you want to change there wont be a problem for them.

    *Was talking about in game (screen) name. The account name I don't know if it's possible.

    They aren't going to let you change it, unfortunately.

    Forgot to mention it's especially easy for them to allow it to change if the screen name discloses any personal information, like your name, or your city, or you born date, etc.

    That was the reason my both friends presented and they successfully changed.
