Yep, I inherited a seven year old laptop from a relative which they didn't want and I actually used it with their original name although they'd otherwise cleaned it and created an admin account for me.

At the time I was a complete noob to PCs and didn't know how to change that but when I eventually learned it could be done quite easily I simply didn't bother. Never caused any problems over the six years I was using it.
