Hello, I recently changed the user (name next to house icon) on my OSX SnowLeopard system but the old name still reappears in the terminal

Daphne:~ festo$

I would like to change it from displaying "festo" to the new name I have entered. The only trace of "festo" i could find on my HDD was the download of Eclipse. Is deleting this and then re-downloading going to be the only way to solve my problem? Thanks.

Eclipse has nothing to do with this. Do you have a ~/.bash_profile file? If so, can you post it here for us?

It's very possible that your old username was hard coded as a value for the PS1 environment variable (although I don't see why this would be the case).

I'd be willing to bet that festo is still the Account Name under Advanced Options, under the user in user control panel.
