    this isn't the same issue with seeing the full name in the menu bar. I'm just wondering if i can change the full name without affecting the user account. I hate seeing my first and last name. First name is enough..

    Changing your full name only affects how it is displayed in the menu bar and login screen, and won't change your user account in any way.
