When you rename the user in Active Directly you might find that the old name is still resolving in People Picker when granting that user permissions. This is happening because user's entries for granted permissions are stored in a hidden “User Information List”  located at http://<SiteCollectionUrl>/_catalogs/users/detail.aspx. And if the same user was added before his/her name wont be updated with the new changes from AD (even after running a full or incremental import via UPS).

In order to update the users in that list consider using a following powershell script http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/AutomatingSharePoint/~3/ueik7IMLEVY/
