Changing the name of an individual

Classification: Query
I have recorded an individual person by their shortened name e.g Peggy. I now want to change it to Margaret and add another christian name. I have gone into the edit person and clicked on Edit Name and entered the "correct" info. This shows correctly but when I go to the family view and indeed when I look at another individual and then go back to the person whose name I have changed it still shows the original name that I input when setting up the tree. Is there a work around to achieve this or do I have to delete the person and start with them again? The latter will mean inputting all the dat about that person - spouse, children etc. I can't find anything in the manual that covers this. Thanks
