How do I change my Youtube nickname from "Firstname Lastname" to "Nickname" or just "Firstname"

I'm encountering a small but rather frustrating stupid problem that's driving me mad.

At some point Google insisted on me specifying a first and last name. I entered "Stromboli" for both. Since then, my nickname appears as "Stromboli Stromboli" (i.e. twice).

I have changed my nickname, I have removed the last name, but no matter what I try... It seems to looks OK in all profile settings but when I actually place a comment anywhere on Youtube, it still appears as "Stromboli Stromboli".

Here's some screenshots of what I tried, with the current settings.

• Youtube top right profile popup:

• Youtube settings:

• When I click Edit on Google:

• The dropdown options for "Display my name as" are:

• Back in in my Google profile:

• Clicking the top right popup:

• When I click on "My Account", I get to Personal info in Google:

• And even my Gmail settings:

• However... When I place a comment on a video, or when I enter the chat in a Live stream:

Would anyone know how the hell I can get Youtube to just show my name as "Stromboli" (once, not twice) when I place comments on videos or streams??
