Create SDE featureclass without username as prefix

When I create a new featureclass in SDE, it was created with the username as prefix by default.

Example:     user1.testFeatureClass

But I want to create a featureclass without having the username as prefix. How to accomplish this? 

Thanks in Advance.

The Feature Name can not be changed. Although you can change the Alias. This would make sure when you add the feature to ArcMap, the alias name would be assigned as the layer name.
