You can change the name seen by others by editing your profile but you cannot change your actual Skype name.  The only choice is to create a new Skype name/account and stop using the old one.

If a lot of people want's to change their skype username why you don't make it possible??? it's too hard for you?  don't you have enought smart people for this? don't you have time for this? dont't you have money for this? I don't get it....really. I just think you don't care and you don't want. Now you have enought users and you simply don't care. Shame! It could be so simple.....

A Skype login name cannot be changed, nor are they deleted.  It's always been this way.  So it would seem to be a preference that they don't plan on changing any time soon.  If you don't like your Skype login name, wait until your subscription has ended and create a new account and inform your contacts.  It might be an inconvenience but probably better than users changing their login name ever 5 minutes because they can.   If they allowed it,  I don't want to imagine how inaccurate the Skype directory would be in a matter of seconds.  Not to mention complaints of "my name didn't change fast enough!"  "Why do I have to wait so long?" etc..  Creating a new account seems to me to be a better approach to avoiding inaccuracies and more abuse of the current system.
