Incorrect profile name

Have setup Confluence Server version 5.8.16 and all working well. However there is one issue that is driving me mad. Initially a user account was created with a spelling mistake in the surname. Having amended this error the original (incorrect) name still appears under the 'All Updates", 'Favourite Spaces' and 'Space Categories' tabs on the Dashboard. No matter how often I change the details it remains and continues for new updates as well. I have checked the SQL tables which are correct and restarted the server (as well as disabling and re-enabling the user account) - all to no avail. Appreciate any advice.
