Which Name does MS Form record when Record Name is selected

Copper Contributor

I recently have an issue whereby a user has updated their name. As a practice, we only update the display and full name but not the first and last name. Recently, when the user participates in a MS form, the name recorded is his First + Last name and not the display name. We then checked across all M365 services like outlook, SharePoint, etc. And all is showing the user updated display name. hence we are trying to find out how does MS Form capture the respondent's name

Microsoft Forms uses the respondent's First Name and Last Name as their name, rather than their display name.
Is there in anyway configurable or is fixed that they use First and Last Name?

@3vild3vil aka Piggy no, there is no way to configure or change it.
