On a user object, display name is normally the user's first name followed by their last name, but it can be set to any string.

The rules for display names are:

- Local display names must be unique on a workstation.

- Display names must be unique throughout a domain.

- Display names may not exceed 64 characters.

- Display names can contain alphanumeric characters and special characters.
