The user changed from Intern to the actuall username (firstlast). What would happen when he logs out and logs back on?  Would his profile be messed up?  Will he be able to logon?

Please advice.  Thanks.

    The user should be able to login using the new username
    The profile should stay the way it is now.

    Yes it should, as he should be logging in via SID, not username. The SID remains the same even if the SamAccountName or SamID changes.
