How Do You Change Your PSN User Name?

Is there a way to change your username on PSN to something else like you can on Steam of Xbox Live?

It is incredibly stupid that this is the case, but it is not currently possible to change your username on PSN. It has been the case for over 10 years now and a lot of people have been asking for this to be added, but it still has not been done. Apparently, it will never be possible due to the way that PSN was built, but I find this hard to believe. For the moment at least, you will be unable to change your PSN name once you pick it, so make sure you use a good one….easier said than done when you pick the name when you are 15.
