About email address names
By default, the Email account name field displays your email address. You can name an email address to make it more meaningful to you. For example, if your email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, you could name it "Justin Jones at work".
When you compose an email message from your smartphone, the name that you give to your email address appears in the Send Using field at the top of the email message. The name that you give to your email address also appears on the home screen below the messages application icon for the email address.
