Remove name from Alias email on outook.com

I have recently edited my profie on outlook.com. My name now appears on the top right hand side instead of my email address when I am checking my emails. When I went to send an email and choose my alias, my name had been added there. I do not want my name shown on this alias as I use this alias for mainly business or more formal letters and I only want my alias email address provided, as I sometimes send things on my husbands behalf so don't want my name appearing on the email. When I tried to edit both to remove my name in the my profile section it will not let me as it wants a christian and surname provided. I don't mind changing it just to a surname, therefore covering myself and my husband but it will not let me. Help!

I've just had a go at this myself and it appears you are right, I can't find a way to have a blank first name. I tired using a space but outlook.com was too smart for that =(
