Changing Active Directory Accounts

In our environment we use employee ID as user logon account example: 199200,199201,etc...

We are planning to switch to first initial last name example Mjohns

so if Michael Johns now logs in with 199200 and rename his account to Mjohns, would that have impacts on his logon or on the applications, or the changes will be synched through AD, and everything will be fine ?

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thank you
