To change the name of the face completely go into the people library and right click on the Name and choose Edit and type in the correct name. (BE aware it doesnt seem to be case sensitive and ignores spaces so you cant correct these issues as it will default back to the original).
To Split the faces into two different faces which I think is what you want head into the Faces library then click on the name and all the faces for both people will appear then you can decide on the new name you wish to give one then click on each image of that person and it will bring up a field to edit the name and you can rename them leaving the original name with only one face.
