Wrong name appears in front of my live email address when i receive emails
I have a live email address. Some of the emails that i receive in this account have a wrong name appear in front my email address in the email header. My profile information has the right name. I don't know where this wrong name is comming from. I think
it only happens in incomming emails and outgoing emails have the right name. Any idea how to fix it? Thanks.

I had a similar issue. Though not exactly the same as the OP (not with my live email address, just with the Windows 10 Mail app) I was able to resolve my problem. Thought I would share in case others were suffering from the same issue.
I have several email accounts that I use with the Windows 10 Mail app, and somehow the name from one email account was copied over to another email account's settings. I finally fixed the issue by reviewing all my email account settings using the steps
Click on the settings icon/button in the Mail app.
Click "Manage Accounts".
Select an account to review/edit.
Click "Change mailbox sync settings"
Scroll down to "Your name" and edit as necessary.
Repeat for all accounts.
