When I google my full name, my blog comes up. I really don't want it to come up when people search for my full name. Is there any way to remove it?

Removing your full name from your blog is the first best thing to do.
Then you can uncheck "do not allow bots to perform search index on my site" somewhere in the settings page.

what Nancy said, the option is under Settings > reading "Discourage search engines from indexing this site"

I'm not exactly sure what that does, it probably adds something to the .htaccess file, you could also create a robots.txt file, info here

It's not on there. There's a link to my Facebook but that's it.

Remove your facebook URL on your blog :). Note that it will take some time for the site to go away from google searches
