Username Change on Computer

We've changed a users last name and display name to match her new married name. Everything looks like it's updated except for the profile loading screen on her computer. She logged in with the new credentials and it loads her profile but it's loading her old name. I've renamed the profile folder in C:\Users and relocated the profile registry key to the new folder. Any ideas where the old name is cached in the system?

Do you have Exchange installed on your location ?
If yes please go to ECP and double check User Properties
Also remember that NAME (Display Name) can't exceed 64 characters

You'll want to use PowerShell for name changes such as these.  Specifically the Rename-ADObject cmdlet:

We changed everything except for the alias. Once we changed the Alias in Exchange the profile loaded correctly.
