I still can't figure out a solid fix for newlyweds trying to change their surname. We use Okta so whenever we change the email address in Okta, HipChat creates a brand new user. Is there a way to change the Full Name field instead so that the email address is negligible?

I would also advise you to submit your request directly to the HipChat support team. Based on what you described, this request will likely require some further investigation on the support side. You can file a support ticket at the page linked below:
