I don't even know if it's possible to do this, but what I'm trying to do is to change how my name on YouTube shows up to others (when I post videos or comments or the like). I just want to change the name while keeping my channel, the videos I've posted, and suchlike.
I read (I think) that you can do this by unlinking your YouTube account to the Google+ account it's currently linked to, then link it to a different Google+ account—is this accurate? Currently it is forcing me to use my real name as my YouTube channel name. This is downright obnoxious; I want anonymity, I don't want every video I post to be emblazoned with my real name for every person who googles me to see! How can I change it to a username that is not my real name?
