How to correct Microsoft Account name in Windows Phone
WRONG NAME! I have just spotted that my Microsoft Account name / email on my new phone is slightly wrong, it is not quite the same as my correct name on my Tablet PC and registered with MS. I am trying to change it on the phone but so far have been unable. I am given the option to change the password but not the name.
I see there is a lot of information on the website about changing names and aliases but am not clear what is applicable to my situation.
I have confirmed my account again, having received a security code by email. How do I change / correct my name on the phone?
Phone: Lumia 435 Windows 8.1

Posting answer so it may help others:
Sign in to the Your info page on the Microsoft account website.
Under your name, select Edit name. If there’s no name listed yet, select Add name.
Edit or add the name you want, then choose Save. Your Microsoft account name will start to appear or change everywhere you use it.
