    I had the same problem because I gave a wrong name during first run...

    I changed it from System Preferences > Sharing > Computer Name

    well, i'm not quite sure what you're talking about. there is the name of the user, which cannot be changed without a reformat, and there is the actual name of the computer which you can change in Sys Pref > Sharing

    EDIT: whoops, ThoDis beat me to it.
