Windows 8 Start Screen-how do I change my account name on Start Screen??

Hi!

I was apprehensive but I'm loving Windows 8, however, what is driving me mad is the account name that features in the top right of my Start Screen. It is my previous name and although it seems menial it is driving me crazy that it is wrong! I have change in PC settings and also via Windows Live (which the log in is connected to) but the change won't reflect on the Start Screen.

Has anyone any ideas?!!

Thanks
