Sorry, I couldn't resist!! LOL.

Andy, Abie, & Andre (hmmm, interesting, the 3 As, there's gotta be a joke in there somewhere) have the correct and sensible answer.

When in trouble and there's nobody that can help call your local Triple-A for roadside assistance.

You would need to create a new user name as Admin cannot be changed. Go to users on your dashboard the add user fill in your details you may need to give a different email address than what you have as admin once done a password will be automatically generated for you.
Leave the tick in the box so you can get any emails as well
don't forget to give yourself Admin rights as well and save


This short training by Lyn can show you visually to what I just explained. Andre

Hi

Users tab, WordPress sites back office, edit, enter a first name and then choose which one to use (admin or the newly entered name) and save changes.

Done.
