Sorry, not possible. You can create a new account, and it will have a different username, which will be anything you choose that is available. It will NOT be connected to your current account. You can give this new account any transferrable items in your inventory, but if you've gotten anything non-transferrable, those items will have to stay with your current account.

You can also create a display name. It will float above your username and appear next to your username in chat, to anyone who has not disabled their ability to see display names. It's a good way to not lose your items, but still have a name and "persona" you like. The drawbacks are that 1) not everyone will see it, depending on whether or not they have display names disabled in their own preferences; and 2) not everyone will use your display name, depending what you choose and if they prefer referring to people by their user or display names.

If you don't have much invested in your current account, it would be easier and more effective to just create a new one.
