Profile subject labeled incorrectly as Unknown

I just completed an unsourced profile for the Northumberland team for Orm Gamalson (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Unknown-154441).  His profile account is Unknown-154441 (same issue with his son).  I am unable to change the "unknown" status on Orm's profile and thus his account name cannot be updated.  I know it's preferred that one doesn't  change account names/numbers, but in this case it is certainly warranted.  But, I am uncertain how to fix the problem.  Any direction would be appreciated.

The last name at birth can only be changed by the Profile Manager or someone on the Trusted List. You should contact the PM and give the source for the proposed change. You can also request to be added to the Trusted List for the profiles.
