infopth username function

hi Experts

we have users who got married and changed thier surname which led to username change.
the  problem is when they open infopath form still shows the old username

I am using the Infopath username function, where does it pull information from when its infopath browser form

because one site works fine but the other one works differently

the problem is the site collection still shows the old username, how can i change the account to show the new one
Commented:
InfoPath pulls the DisplayName of the user from the site collection, specifically the User Information List.

More info on the User Information List.

You can edit or just delete the user. The next time they access the site it will update from AD.
