If your reputation truly is that bad, there's really nothing a name change will do to remedy that. The people who already are familiar with your posts will still know who you are, and the new people coming in won't really care either way. You'd have to change your name, your avatar/sig images, your blog, etc. if you really wanted to try and throw people off. And even that probably wouldn't work.
But to do that seems silly to me. As long as you aren't being an arrogant jerk anymore I don't think anyone will give two thoughts about what you used to be like. So you should change your name to whatever makes you feel the most comfortable. (Personally I still think Electric Turahk is pretty cool so that gets my vote).
And for what it's worth, although I do have vague recollections of some of your older posts, I certainly don't associate you with having an arrogant attitude now. So honestly I think you're fine.
I've been a depressed introvert before, so I feel you.
But ET...I guess I haven't been around long enough to associate that name with arrogance. The few names that have the "arrogant" label attached to them haven't faded with name changes - but that's because I remember everyone's "original" names and connect them and those together.
If you really want to prove that you've changed - the rule is easy: just show that you've changed. Sometimes it takes time, but eventually people will remember you as either the "nice guy" or "the arrogant guy who changed". The latter is actually more powerful than if you didn't have the original flaw. It says to people "if you have this flaw, you can change."
So if I were you, I would walk back and take up the old mantle. There's no tear that a sewing needle won't mend, and the pattern of the stitches tells a story for other people to read and take heart.
I recognized the name Ektris, but that might just be since I read all the Toa Sectra bios years ago.
Could always go with Kamen Rider Drive so you can tell people to "START YOUR ENGINE."
Or change back to ET...
Eh, running around as Mashin Chaser telling people to BREAK YOUR BODY sounds a lot more fun though.
