Need to change the last name on Eliza-35 to Unknown.

Eliza-35 was created with her last name as Eliza and first name unknown.  She should have been created with Eliza first name and last name Unknown.  There is no profile manager.  Is it possible for me or someone else to change her last name without adoption.  I added her to Unsourced Georgia so I would be able to come back to her.  She doesn't have sources that I will add.  She is the wife of Taylor-5726.

From records at Family search I added the date and place of birth and the source to her profile.

Eliza is a surname and a first name, looked it up on Google search.

Eowyn Langhoff changed her given surname name to unknown and her first name to Eliza.

Thank you for also looking at this David.  I had already sourced her as the wife "Eliza" in several censuses, so I was pretty sure (but not positive) that she had just been entered into WikiTree from a gedcom with her first name posted as a surname.  Honestly, I thought I had her real surname after perusing all the marriage records on Family Search that were possible -- another Rabbit Hole -- which I seem to wander down periodically.  My genealogical name must be Alice...

Thanks again!
