Last weekend I noticed emails I sent through Gmail were not in my name it had been altered somewhat,It was me sending them just my name had been altered to " Mart Demon" I changed it back to my original name,through Gmail/Google preferences

How can this have happened?

In "Settings" click on the "Accounts & Import" tab. There you should see "Send email as" and you may find it has been changed to "Mart Demon". I believe you can change this by clicking on the "Edit info" on the right of that page.

I would not waste time worrying about how this happened. I suggest that you click here and scroll down to the section headed 'Securing your account'.

martd7,

Perhaps someone knows your password and has made this change as a "joke"? Might be best to change your password and keep it to yourself.
