"There should be a way in the software to show when someone has taken the more serious step of actually changing their name."

I understand your point though I'm not quite sure just how or where you'd like to see this reflected in the program.

That being said, use his original name as the preferred, his new name as an alternate (or vice-versa) and create a custom fact that reflects the approximate date of his name change...source...and stir over medium heat.
