An administrator user group can be given the right to change the 'full name' of the member and separately to change the 'login name'. This is in the department 'Member administration permissions und 'Members'.

As standard, the first of these two is enabled for the system administrator (he can change the members full name), but the second is disabled (he can not change the login name). You can change these settings, but there is one good reason not to do it:

The member login name is the one identifier you can identify participants on transactions, when you have later a look on logs and reports generated earlier.

It can be very annoying, if you see transactions in former reports, but can not find the participants any more in the current system.
