Go to your profile/my weather stations, on your WU account and select and click the gear icon to the right of your station listing and click edit and you can change the name where it says neighborhood.

You can change the location name but the owner name is attached to your login name and can't be changed.  I don't think they display the owner name anymore though.

The owner name still shows up when using the WU mobile app. And I have not found a way to change it. It is the same as my login name.

Thank you for the input. I guess Iíll just have to live with my generic login/owner name.

Ah, I never use that due to the ridiculously user-unfriendly design.  You've never been able to change your username or the PWS owner so that's pretty much normal.
