I got married and changed my last name.  I have a personal use macbook pro and I am the only account/administrator for my laptop.  I have read many instructions involving creating a new administrator account and deletign the old one, but I wanted to know if there was any other way to change the name on the User directory folder.  I changed my long and short name, and every other name on my accounts last year, but I have been unable to change the name on the directory.  I have tried the chown -R /Users/old name /Users/new name in Terminal, but nothing happens after I enter my password.  Can someone help?  Thank you.

MacBook Pro, iOS 6.1.2
