How to change the on line user name on PS3 games....any ideas please

Hi
Does anyone know how to change the name everyone sees when you are online. My son has a nick name that everyone else sees not sure what you call it and he wants to change it.
Not sure how to do it and worried a bit as his account is the master account so dont want to fiddle too much.
Can this be done. It seems so simple but after searching forums it suggests i would have to set up a new user account and then delete his old one which would scare the pants off me as it is the master account. So far i have told him he has to stick with the old name but want to try to help him.

dont think you can change the name - you have to create a new account if you you want a different name. just create a new log on, then ps3 id and make it a master account aswell, then delete the old one. He will loose all his old offline progress though so he should copy it onto a memory stick and then copy it back on. He would loose his online progress forever.
