Discussion on: Changing your name is a hard unsolved problem in Computer Science

Someone I used to work with had issues when she changed her name. She transitioned while at the company and they were very supportive. Email address and phone-book details all changed without issue ... for a while. It seemed that once a year, some automated process would notice the discrepancy between her old name and her current name and change many things back. Awkward for me, infuriating for her.

Which is weird that it would change everything to the old name, instead of syncing to the new name...
