    Description

      If you set for example

      fullnamedisplay : firstname lastname (or in the example below 'language' which corresponds to the same in english)
      alternativefullnameformat : lastname firstname

      (in admin/settings.php?section=userpolicies)

      then there's an inconsistency in the UI which is hard to explain to users.

      Why should the user menu name not be fullnamedisplay as well ('Admin' being set as firstname and 'User' being set as lastname in the screenshot below)?

       

      (fullname() is called with parameter true in https://github.com/moodle/moodle/blob/master/user/lib.php#L856)
