Thank you Elizabeth

You need to do the following.

Click on the Gear Wheel in the top right and click Settings.

Click on Edit next to Yahoo Account in Accounts.

There you see the sending name and you can correct it there.

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
