check the security settings in Your profile. Can anybody/everybody see Your name?
There is no way to change your username itself after your account is created, so you will always be logging in with user24776. As Markus noted you can change your profile privacy settings to display your name instead of your username.
When you edit your profile, there is a privacy tab that has this setting (see screenshot).
Now in the "edit profile" page there is "change username" field.

This is a bit off topic but I am not able to find the link to this site administrator. When I log in my user name doesn't work it makes me use this user###### code. Do you have to login this way? I'd like to have that changed to use my actual user name.
You can try this...
When you edit your profile and click the "Your Profile" tab - scroll down to the bottom and there is a field that labeled "Change Username." See if that does what you want it to do.
Thanks, I changed it. I'll see tomorrow if it takes. Thanks to all for you replies
