Just got married and I want to change my name. Looks like I can everything but name. Anyone know what to do?

You need to contact the PBS team.  Just go to the bottom of the page and look for Contact Us to send them a note.

You should be able to change both the initial "M." of your previous name and the name in your mailing address with a note to the PBS Team via Contact Us at the bottom of any PBS page. However, you will not be able to change your nickname.

See Help Center doc for How do I choose a PBS nickname/make a public profile?

Members have, on rare occasion, been permitted to change their nicknames as well.  If that's something you're interested in, because, perhaps, your maiden name is part of your nickname, ask the Feedback folks about that as well.  I'm not sure what their criteria are for changing nicknames, but it never hurts to ask.
