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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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

This will fix your problem.
