Hi Mark,

the fullname in AD and the Displayname which is used to display the name in GAL are different.

Use AD Users and Computer - Properties of the users to change the displayname. After that replicate your Active Directory to update the Global Catalog Server which are generating the GAL.

This is a normal AD replication. Use AD Sites and Services - Server - NTDS, rightclick the connection an replicate.
