    Hello and welcome to TenForums :)

    I think it would be easiest to add a new local user account and then set it up in the way that you want, using your name and adding a password and picture etc. Make sure you then set it as an Administrator account. Later you can decide if you want to convert it a Microsoft Account.

    Once you have everything sorted and have copied any files over from the old account you can then delete the old account with the incorrect name.
