    You can change the display name by specifying a nick name and then select it in the drop down list below.

    The drop down list of display name doesn't list a name that I want to use and there is no option to customize.

    Try changing your first name & saving - then seeing if that adds an option in the dropdown

    Yes, the changing my first name & saving does create the display name that I chose adds an option in the drop down menu. However, it doesn't change the display name next to my profile picture. That seems to be set with my login name.

    Correction. The Forum, the user profile page.
