For your safety and protection, please never, ever include any personally identifiable information such as your real name, Skype account name, e-mail address, or a telephone number in a post on a public Community or forum such as this. Thanks!
Unfortunately, it is not possible - https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA110/can-i-chang
Hi, Revrob75, and welcome to the Community,
With Skype, changing an account name after it is created - and thereby reserved for your use only - is not possible. Skype does not have a facility to withdraw a no-longer-used account name from other peoples' contact lists ... on the other side of the argument, I would be horrified if someone else started using your account name - if Skype permitted such changes and decided to recycle account names - and your particular account name still appeared on my contact list!
You can either change your name as it is displayed, or start a new account and then transfer your contacts over to the new account.
Please note: To remove (delete) a Skype Account, you must contact Skype Customer Service directly. We here in the Community cannot process account-related service requests.
Online Safety Tips: Do not accept contact invitations from anyone whom you do not know, and change your passwords regularly and often.
