Sourcetree using wrong user name and won't push due to validation error

I have a situation on my new Windows 10 laptop and haven't been able to figure it out. This all works fine on my former laptop. When I commit and push using Sourcetree 3.4.5 or 3.4.6, it clearly shows my correct user name and user email, but after the commit, I get the message below that the user name is not valid. It is somehow pulling the wrong user name from somewhere. 

I've checked everywhere. My .gitconfig is properly configured and the Settings > Advanced is set up to "Use global user settings". Everywhere I've looked, (Credentials Manager, .gitconfig, Repository Settings, CMD git config --global, etc.) shows the correct user name and user email. I can't find where it shows LOGAN anywhere.

To further test, I've backed up my repo, cloned a fresh copy, made all my coding updates, made sure and were still correct, committed the change, and still get the message below:

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks push -v --tags --set-upstream origin feature/AEM-1700:feature/AEM-1700

Where is Sourcetree getting LOGAN from and how can I change it?

So apparently there are issues with GUAVA, so it was disabled and I'm able to push commits.
