How to change User Name?

I just registered and was unsure if I could upload more than one DNA to the account. I chose a User Name to reflect the DNA file I initially uploaded which was my father's and not mine. It was after I uploaded I realized I was allowed to upload more than one DNA file to the account. I am the manager of three DNA files on my account and now I would like my User Name be changed from what I initially chose. May I do that and if so how? Or can I request it to be done?

Unfortunately, you can't change the name of the attached person. You must remove your DNA data then upload it again and correctly attach it to the person in your family tree.

I apologize my post wasn't clear enough. I meant my registered account User Name. I want to change my User Name for my account and I just noticed I have the wrong gender selection too so I would like to change that as well. I have no issues with the User Name/Nickname I chose for each DNA file I uploaded including mine.

You can't change your Geneanet username and you must create a new acount.
