What can one do if an inherented house has the name of one’s old name on the deed?
For instance one was born first name Jonny but then one legally changed their name to John. Then John inherits a a house with their old first name Jonny on the deed.

You have NOT inherited property UNTIL the title is legally transferred and recorded in the name of the person who inherits. It doesn't matter what the name of the deceased was as long as it is the actual owner of the property they are bequeathing, and it is the job of the executor or administrator of the estate of the deceased to take care of that.

They get the deed changed by showing the name change documentation, etc. If they inherited after the name change, it would not be put in the old name.

A name chnage does not change what you were called in the past, only what you can sign your name as on legal documents in the future. There will still be a record that your legal name was jonny, and you will need to produce the name change documentation to verify your claim to the property

If you have copies of the paperwork for the name change then all you have to do is present them to whoever needs to verify that you are who you say you are.
