It’s a good idea to check for spelling mistakes before  saving the change, as well as make sure you’re happy to stick with your new name for a while as LYKA may ban your account if you continue to change your name all the time. It also won’t allow symbols, numbers, unusual capitalisation, or punctuations.

Although it’s possible and quite easy to change your username on LYKA, we wouldn’t suggest it unless it’s absolutely important. If you made a mistake the first time, then you probably would want to make the change. On the other hand, changing your Display name is totally fine.
