How could I fix it?

The change is not instant. When you try to change your name, the dialog box states:

Please note that it may take some time for this change to be fully applied.

  • I didn't read this alert, sorry. So, I'll check it later. Thank you very much! Dec 10 '14 at 10:34
  • I confirm that the account name has been updated, thank you! Dec 11 '14 at 8:25
