    I've got my current name as "JoeDuffy" (As seen here: My username/login ETC is "JosephDuffy"/"Joseph Duffy". I'd like to change my home area name to "JosephDuffy", is this at all possible? It's just when using my Contact Card, it never finds me, and creates a new card, a tad annoying, it's also just inconsistency, and I have a bit of a Mac OCD about it :)

    Be sure to be cautious on this as it could result in you needing to reinstall.

    Also, you can go into Address Book and change your info there if that's what you're referring to about the contact card.

    There are a ton of messages here about the issues people run into when they do this, so I wouldn't advise changing it, and if you do, take a ton of backups.

    If you can live with it, do so, if not, it might be much easier to create a whole new user JosephDuffy and then copy the joeduffy files over to it.
