    An administrator can change their usernames by editing them in the ACP :) There are also add-ons in the Resource Manager that can allow users to change their own name - I'll edit my post with a link when I find it :)

    Edit: Here's one, it's $10 but I hear it works well: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/change-username.269/

    There may be others that elude my memory at the moment, although they shouldn't be too hard to find.

    They can choose their user name when they register, even via Facebook.

    They obviously left the user name set as their Facebook name.

    Leaving the username field blank creates the account as first and last name of their facebook account.

    so is better for me to change it using Xenforo or have them change it in Facebook?

    You will need to change it.
    Any changes in Facebook aren't applied to accounts.
