Well, what environment are you in?
If Windows/AD, Active Directory Users and Computers, locate the user and change her name there...

Right click on the user in Users and Computer, and choose rename.  This will guide you through the process of changing the profile properties.  I usually still have to go into the Exchange Addresses tab of the user's properties to add a new SMTP entry for their new e-mail address, but using the rename function takes care of the rest.  Going into the properties and manually trying to change them (like I did the first couple of times) is not the prefered way of doing it.

Does outlook pick up the users name from AD?Do i then just remove the service in outlook and recreate it with her new name?Sorry for my ignorance in this matter.

As far as the sender's name, it should all be pulled from AD as you change the account information.  If you change their username, then depending on how you have Office configured, you may need to manually change their Outlook profile to use the new username unless you configured Outlook to pull the user's login automatically.

Does that make any sense?

her email address is firstname@domain.com so i am more concerned about the display name that recipients of her email see.Does that make sense?

Eagle6990Commented:
Gotcha.  If you just rename her account then you won't loose anything and Outlook will poll AD to get the first and last name so all that should change along with it without you needing to manually change anything else.
