I thought I had to have my real name on the posts. I see others have screen names. Is there any way to change that on my posts?

(Moderator edit:moved post to more appropriate forum.jgweed)

The name that appears on the posts is your "official" member identity. While you can change many of the items appearing to the left of your posts, you cannot edit or change your name.
If you are positively sure you must change it, then you can send a Personal Message to a Global Moderator or to "GRINLER" and request they change your MEMBER name to one that you provide.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
