How do I change my Personal name on Xbox One.

My xbox live account was created using my fathers email. This makes it so that when I connected to live, the xbox addressed me as John, (My fathers name), how to I edit my account so that the xbox addresses me by my name?

Ok. So I am having the same problem about my personal name were do I go when I get to that website and what do I do?

You have to go into the email account used to create the account and change it there.  You cannot do it through the Xbox Live account itself.
