 It's the way it is because you haven't changed your display name.

 Change your display name from the "My Account > Edit Profile" page.

 Or you can also modify this through the WP profile admin page: /wp-
 admin/profile.php.  Select the "Display name publicly as" field to
 something else.

 Keep in mind that your profile URL will still contain your username.

 If you have any other issues, please respond to this ticket.
