Let's add @Anomie here once so he can verify this didn't affect ongoing actor migration as per https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Deployments#Week_of_January_14th

Rename successfully completed. Thanks.

For what is worth: this caused lag on the two rc slaves: db1103:3312 and db1105:3312

Should be fine, the actor migration prefers to use user IDs rather than names for registered users and the rename process doesn't change the ID. I double checked that the actor table on itwiki and wikidatawiki reflects the new name, and it does.
