There's nothing stopping you from changing the superuser's name from root to whatever you want, because it's not the name that has the special meaning (as Administrator does under Windows) as the account number of 0.

There's nothing special about the Administrator account name under
Windows. It can be renamed because the SID is what identifies it just as
UID 0 identifies the root account in Linux.
