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.
