No, changing the values in the registry won't necessarily get everything - not all information about your account is stored as text - there are SID's and CLSID's that are in hex that have this info also.
The simplest way is to go into User Accounts and change the name. This'll leave the account with the original name in Documents and Settings (it'll sort of "overlay" that name) - but will show the new name whenever you logon.
Another option is to create another profile with the correct information - then transfer the information from the old account. Once the new account is working correctly, you can delete the old one. Here's a link: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=811151
