It sounds like you need to change your Display Name in AOL Mail.  To do this, try logging into http://mail.aol.com/ and clicking 'Settings' near the top right of the screen.  Then, click the 'Compose' tab to the left of the screen, which should bring up, among other things, the option to change "Your 'From' Name."  Change this to your desired name and click save.

How to send email to all my contacts in AOL

If spam is being sent in your name, there isn't much you can do to stop it. If you want to send mail to all your contacts, you may need to copy the names from your address book one at a time. And I recommend no more than 20 in one mail. You should probably use BCC so you don't show all the names ...
