administrator name

Thanks to my wonderful typing skills, when I set up my Win XP pro I managed to input my name as Jpohn instead of John as the admin. Although I've looked I cannot find how to change this. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Thanks guys, I've tried both these and if I do a search in regedit for Jpohn, there are still a lot of entries!!!
