You can't do that, at least not on your own.

If you are in an 'extreme circumstance' as stated in the above link, try to contact an admin. I have absolutely no clue on what a 'very good reason' can be....

Well, I can assure you that there are "valid reasons". I myself asked Jeremy to change my nickname and he was nice enough to do that. So if you believe that you have a good reason give it a try.

But changing nick just because it doesn't "sound cool" or something isn't neccessary. We don't judge people depending on how 'cool' their nicknames are.

Normally, "just wanting a cool name" isn't a good enough reason. You could try contacting Jeremy, but name changes really don't happen often because of the administrative overhead.

Your best bet is to email Jeremy offline giving him the full reason why you want to change your name.
