    Thank you for your feedback. The team is currently planning for a profile editing experience for Guests that will include changing profile images as well as updating display names. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

    We where able to change the display name, but I agree; it is not very user/admin friendly.

    1. Change the display name in Azure AD (just like RV did)
    2. remove and re-add the guest user from and to the team
    Then we saw the correct display name.

    (There was some time between the Azure adjustment and the Teams action, I think one week or so.
    I don't know of this is needed, it just went that way.) It can take a while apparently: https://www.reddit.com/r/Office365/comments/9xpqpf/changing_ms_teams_guest_account_display_names_and/

    For new guest accounts; It seems you have only one shot to change the display name, at the invitation with the teeny-tiny little edit pencil. But must users/owners forget this or don't pay attention to it and come to IT afterwards.. :-(
