How to change the name admin for Drupal 7

I want to change the name admin of Drupal 7 so that hackers do not know it. Some software is trying to find the correct password as the software knows that most of the webmasters use the default name admin for administration. To change this name would make it more complicated for this software to find the correct username and password combination. Does anybody know how to change the default name "admin" for administering the website?

I don't know any method to change the admin name. But there is a module to change your admin path. 

Rename Admin Paths - is a module which lets you change the admin paths. It would let you change the path like -
rename path like /admin/... to /name you want/...
