Renaming username and Home directory and TS profile

Hi
I was wondering if there's an easy way to rename a user in AD, for example a person getting married who's changing her surname, and automatically apply the changes to the email address (this is already done by renaming the user I think), Profile Path and Home folders, and folder for the Terminal Services user Profile.
At the moment I'm just renaming the users and leave the Profile and Home path folders unchanged, as by manually renaming those I get all sort of problems, but it can get a bit confusing to match when you have many users.
Any third-party tool maybe?
Thank you
