    What you need is mod_rewrite

    Just edit the .htaccess file.

    Search for mod_rewrite examples - there are plenty.

    Thanks for replying. I don't know much about Mod rewriting and won't want to mess up this site, it's a big and ranking website.
    Just thought there must be a plugin that does this thing effortlessly.

    Either you create a new directory under your wordpress installation/root directory ("myname" in your case) and upload the files there or you could use a redirect plugin.

    I have never thought of a redirection plugin though. Nice idea. I was going through google and came across plugins like Media file renamer, etc.
    But they don't do what i need. I just need a clean attachment url,

    Thanks. Am currently going through this plugin, and it seems to change different links of my media attachment pages.
    Will update you.

    Thank you very much.
