    I was looking for an add-on of this kind without paying and I found it. I recommend this add-on for those who would to leave the choice to the user to change his username.

    As I said that's awesome. Thanks. I'm also using this add-on. Honestly, I would recommend also using this plugin. After install the add-on, your forum users can easily and comfortably change their own user names. There is some options to change user names whenever users want. It means it's very useful and customizable.
