Changing your username would be much easier to just create the new name as a user and cut and paste all the files to the new directories once you have logged on to your new username. After all the data and files are moved, you can then log on to your new userid and remove the old one.
That would be a much simpler method.
(this is all assuming that each of them is an administrator)
