This won't be entirely fool-proof, but...
You might try adding the user cmatheson to your system (as root):
$ adduser cmatheson
Then (as root):
$ cd /home
$ mv fatmike cmatheson
$ chown -R cmatheson.cmatheson cmatheson
Then, from that moment on, log in as cmatheson instead of fatmike.
When you're satisfied nothing else on the system is 'owned' by the user
$ rmuser fatmike
