Change Active Directory CN without recreating account

How do I change an Active Directory CN without recreating the account. I have users that have changed their last names. I changed the Last name field appropiately, but the CN remains with the original last name.
For example, I have a users name that has changed from "Jane Doe" to "Jane Deer". I need the original CN name of "Doe,Jane" to change to "Deer,Jane" without recreating the account.

Right click the user in AD and select "Rename" you will be prompted for all appropriate fields to rename.

This will fix your problem.
