How do I change my username?

Recently i've added new accounts in my PC, and for one of those need to change name: I've try to change it by "graphical procedure" from "account manager menu" but change only the name in LogIn screen and near the clock. If I open a Terminal the name remain the old one.

I need to have this situation from Old name: franco@PC-Casa:~$ -----> I want obtain New name: francesco@PC-Casa:~$ o

How i can do this without create a new one user and transfer all data? Can you explain me step by step the procedure?
