OneNote Using Wrong Name for User?

Occasional Contributor

In at least some places where OneNote automatically references a user's first name (i.e. the name it uses when auto-creating the first notebook, the initials that appear in the "my account" button at the top right of the web app) it appears to ignore a user's Display Name and instead incorrectly uses their First Name from Azure AD. OneNote is the only app in the Office 365 suite I've been able to find that behaves this way so I'm stumped on why it pulls standard user info from AAD differently from everything else, but as far as I can tell there's no setting for the user or admins to fix it in the admin portal. Does anyone happen to know if there's a way to make OneNote properly use Display Names instead of First Name?
