I have recently changed my username and account name on my Gmail account. It works perfectly (for now) but I noticed when I entered in some of my past email conversations that it still shows up my old account name/username.

Is there a way to fix this, to somehow update my Gmail account so that my new username/account name shows in my past email conversations?

When you change your profile name in your Google account, your previous name will remain in previous conversations. This behaviour can't be fixed anyhow at this moment.
