    Well, somehow my comment failed to register. Never mind: as far as I can
    tell, the mystery is solved thanks to Roger this morning. The bizarre name
    comes from the Vcard accessed under Tools > Options > Compose tab > Business
    Card section > Edit button. How it got there I have no idea: I didn't put it
    there!

    So: If there is a Nickname on the Business Card Contact sheet, WLMD uses
    that as the Display Name. Otherwise, the FirstName-LastName pair. If those
    fields are empty, then it uses the Messenger Display Name as shown on the
    logon screen.

    Ah yes, but poor old Roger is still here...with his name still being
    displayed as Loyd. Hehe. I can change almost all the other info on that
    vcard, except the name, which is my boss' name. Both first AND last.

    If it helps anyone, the only place I have my boss' name listed like that is
    in my gmail contacts. So it was either when I imported them from gmail to
    WLMD, or possibly gmail to OE or Oulook, then to WLMD.
