How can I change my username?

Hello maintainers of this forum,

My question is:
How can I change my username?

I see that I used my real name instead of a fictitious name.
Because of my privacy I would like to change it.

Your username — your Fedora account name — can’t be changed at this time. You’ll have to make a new account. You can change your display name here in the preferences.

We’d like to make it so people can change usernames, but we have so many assumptions built around them in almost 20 years of Fedora Infrastructure, so it’s a big project.

Thanks for the information! I will create a new account somewhere in the future!
