Just tried it on mine and couldn't reproduce..

Check what your Display Name is set as under Settings > Identity

I wonder if your browser auto-fill or a password manager might have inserted it into the wrong field at some stage?

Thanks, everyone,sorted, it was in identities, not sure how it got there though as I don't use any password manager ...

I'd check your Sent items folder on webmail, make sure you havn't actually sent anything to anyone with that as your display name.. And maybe just go ahead and change the password to be safe anyways.
