How do I change my username or add my real name to my AAC account?

I have created my account with my usual username 'fcuozzo' and would like to change it to 'Felipe Cuozzo [Atlassian]'.

Is there an easy way of doing it? Or do I need help from a system administrator?

Oops! I had the wrong global setting. I've fixed it now. To change your name:
  1. Click on your username
  2. From "Your Preferences" choose Edit Profile
  3. Change your display name.

No worries, I tried to follow those steps the first time and the 'Display name' field wasn't available. Thanks for the quick answer and fix!

Jeremy Largman [Atlassian] - any inside scoop on how the "Ability to rename a user" issue is coming? As I remember you cannot chage the actual username [JRA-1549]

Actually I don't. All our current updates are via that ticket - JRA-1539.
