You can try the following as a possible solution:

In Word 2003, Tools > Options > Security. Tick the box "Remove personal information from file properties on save." In spite of the name, this does more than just remove information in the file properties. If this box is ticked, Word removes the name of the author of a tracked change, and it removes the date and time that the change was made when you save your document. But it leaves the tracked change itself. All tracked changes and comments will be now attributed to an anonymous "Author".

Cheers,

Bob

You could try this:  

Under Tools, Options, Track Changes, change the options to look like the screen below.  Then, under Tools, Options, User Information, change the name.  The author is selected from that place...
