Custom Registration and Display Name field

    I'm using 9.1.  I'm using the custom registration option.  One of the fields I've added to registration is "Display Name".  It's required.  Upon registering a user I noticed that the Display Name I asked for shows up on the User's profile page under the tab "Manage Profile."  Under the tab "Manage Account" is another "Display Name" field but it is blank and it shows it's required.  The problem is that the users must fill out that information again in order to proceed and just makes for a bad user experience. 

    I'd either like both "Display Name" fields to draw from the same table and therefore sync or be able to remove the Display Name field from the "Manage Account."  thank you.

      I'd delete the Profile property "Display name". Account property "displayname" should be sufficient and editing by the user himself is already supported by DNN out of the box.

        I need a "display name" field to be present during registration.  My users won't come back to add that after they've been verified.

          Is there anything that prevents you from using the default displayname field on the custom registration form. You should be able to use it just like the name fields or email address.
