You can do it actually, but it is a hell of a process. I had two accounts, both in my name but one was for my ex wife. After we divorced, we had contacted Blizzard about getting one of the accounts into her name. It was a long process. Involving multiple phone calls to and from Blizzard, photocopying identification documents like drivers license etc to send to blizzard, written letters from both us yada yada. Honestly it was more damn trouble than it was worth.
They made it very difficult and in the situation of the OP, seriously, I wouldn't bother. Blizz can do it, but they're very particular about the reasons why they'll allow it. My process took almost two months from start to end. You can call/email blizzard ask them, but for your situation I very much doubt they'd let you.
Do you speak about WoW-account (before battle.net accounts) or Battle.net account?
I used to play with my friends account at the end of tbc and then i made my own account with my friends name and transferred my chars. Then battle.net accounts came and i created battle.net account with my own name. Never had any problems with Blizzard.
'Pure Fact' or not, it entirely depends on who answers the phone when you call. I got my step-sister's WoW account (not even the same last names) transferred from her b.net account to mine. We just had to fax in a copy of both of our IDs, as well as the two account names in question. It's entirely possible whether it's against the rules or not. If the CS person wants to do it, they most certainly can.

No, this is not allowed by Blizzard and the person using your account would be considered account sharing in violation of the ToA.
The only exception to this rule is minor children sharing with their legal guardian. No siblings, spouses, etc.
Try Recruit a friend maybe for speedier leveling?
This has, literally, nothing to do with the topic at hand.
And how is that? the OP asked if they can change their account to someone else, the facts given here are that the account belongs to blizzard not the OP and they have no right to give it too some one else.. If they so wish to go down an "against" TOS route that is the OP's choice.
Ok now, bare with me, this happened quite some time ago..
I started playing WoW in November of 05, I stopped playing for a while when I moved in with my girlfriend. She wasn't a gamer but my brother convinced her to play WoW. I had an account, she played on it. I bought myself a copy a few months later.
We changed the info on it to her info, including email address. (that might have happened at battlenet account merges, I can't remember.)
Now, this account was still under my name right up until Battlenet merges. She had the battlenet account registered in her name and the wow account put on it.
Point is, my info was on that WoW account, and now it isn't, my (now) wife's is. We didn't contact blizzard for any of it but it was done in 06.
I tried everything to get an old account off my battle.net could not seem to find a way, but there was this one time while on hold with blizz a pidgeon flew up to the sill of my window while i had the screen open so, i snuck up on it dropped my pants and bare ass farted on it. it made weird sound a flew off briskly, i laughed so hard that when i finally got through i was trying to regain composure and the person that accepted my call just hung up. i sent them a strongly worded email of what happened, and didnt even get an automated response. how rude !
Hi all, thought I'd chime in here, we don't explicitly offer to change the account owner's name on an account. There are, however specific circumstances under which we will consider changing the name of the listed account holder, the most common being a Guardian-to-child request. To be clear, gifting the account is not one of the circumstances in which we would be able to update the account holder's name. As ever, you are always welcome to contact us with any specific inquiries.
