For most purposes, what's important is not the account name,
but the User II. "Root" is special because it has UID 0. You can,
create other accounts with UIS 0 ... but it's usually a Very Bad
As far as I know, there's no reason you can't rename the "root"
account and have a non UID 0 account with that name. On the other
hand, if you're asking this question there may be a better way to
accomplish your objective: would you care to share?
