Hi there.
I have managed to change the Full name, the Initials, but when I try to change the User name, I am told it is already in use, whatever the user name I enter.
Obviously, the whole dictionnary is not registered as user names... 


Many thanx

Basically, the Trello user is a unique string of characters.  Trello assigns this user name, and surprisingly many names are already used (or were in use earlier).

Why do you want to change the user name?

Hi Marc. Many thanx for your answer.

I do not quite understand what you mean, but it does not matter. 
I don't see how Trello could have created 'out of nowhere' so many user names like the ones I'm trying to register.
I want to change my user name because I do not identify with the one I first registered a long time ago. I"d prefer one that fits me better, specially now that I work with a team whose members are naturally tempted to ask "why did you chose that name"? 

Do you see a solution for me ?
