Just bought a New iPad for my wife. When I bought it at the Apple store; a representative there helped me set it up. Problem that my wife has now; is that everything on the iPad refers to me. She plays games a lot; and every time she goes to a game; it will say; Welcome back “My username”! She does not like that and I don’t blame her. I have searched through all the settings and I don’t see where I can modify that information. Will someone please point me in the right direction?

It's probably Game Center. While a reset of all settings will probably sign out of GC, signing out of GC is possible by tapping the AppleID and Sign Out. If the AppleID is hers, she can edit the nickname used for the account and other details.
