I have already done this. However when I open "Finder" at the top of the window it says my dads name, and I would lik to change it to my name instead? How can I do this?

People are trying to tell you how to change the Network name, but your issue is the name of the User folder. If your dad's name is John Smith, the file will be named johnsmith.
So, I think you need to change the Admin name to change that. Go to System Preferences>Users&Groups, and change the name of the Current User. In your case it would be Ollivia Lastname.

Actually, it's more complicated than that:
This is not something I would recommend unless you're a computer expert. My suggestion is to just create a new User in Preferences>Users&Groups. You'll have access to all the programs and everything, though files would have to be moved over to the new user.
If this is too much trouble, then you'll have to just live with the Home name.
