Display name is always misspelled


On all the Zoom calls & meetings I participate in, my last name is always spelled wrong.  It's spelled correctly on my computer and in my Zoom profile.  I can find no place in my Zoom settings where it's spelled the (incorrect) way it's displayed on Zoom calls, etc.  How do I change it to the correct spelling?

After joining the meeting and noticing the misspelling do you "Rename" yourself while in the meeting? And if so, does it make it correct for that meeting?


I'm wondering if there is a special, possibly even hidden character that might be causing an issue.


In the mind of troubleshooting, you might join a meeting, see that it is spelled wrong, go to your Zoom Account Profile and type the 1st letter, see if it takes it, then go back and type the 2nd letter of your name, and do this until possibly it hits the character that is causing the issue.
