It depends on the mistake; in some cases, you can leave it like that, and in some others, you may have to rebook the ticket.

You DON'T HAVE to rebook the ticket if:
The name or surname has 3 or fewer incorrect letters. (Unless it changes the name dramatically and makes it a whole different name/surname, e.g. Sam -> Tom)
The name is missing the middle name. As long as the first name is written correctly as per passport, there is no problem.

You HAVE to rebook the ticket if:
The name or surname has more than 3 incorrect letters.
The name order is incorrect. (e.g. On the passport it says "Sam Tom James", but on the ticket, it says "Tom Sam James".
You want to book for a completely different passenger.
