not necessarily, you could change the smtp address to something else and apply the changes, then set the smtp address for the new one.

Another option would be to simply put a different alias such as old.name@domain.com and new.name@domain.com and then create a Distribution group set to receive email from the outside with name@domain.com.  The downside is outbound mail will show new.name@domain.com but at least the inbound email will go to both accounts as desired.
