Changing users name in ad does not reflect when I search ad for them

If I change a users name in ad and then search for them the name does not change in the search results. If I open the user the changes are there but when I search for them the name is still the way it was before I changed it.  Do you know why this is?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This can happen when you have two users with the same name.
When you search what you get is full name of the user which can only be changed if in your search results you right click on the user account and click on rename.
