You could create a new identity and, optionally, revoke the old one.
Read more about it in the GNU Privacy Handbook.  Also, keep in mind
that, if your key is very old already, chances are that it's private
part may have been stolen at some point during its life time, unless you
have handled it very carefully.  If you're worried about this, you may
want to create a new key.
