Welcome to the Mac Forums.

See the following Apple KB article on how to change the home folder name.

Caution! Do not attempt this procedure without first making a backup of your entire hard drive. Also, you will notice that the Apple instructions state that you must enable the "Root" user first. If you mess up while using the "Root" user you could lose data and might not be able to gain access to your original account.

Be careful.

Pro tip: don't :)

Seriously, that is an easy way to mess up your system as was pointed out, so listen to the man!
