Display name doesn't update correctly when first and last name fields are cleared.

Description

When a user fills out the "First Name" and "Last Name" fields in their profile and selects a display name option, the display name reflects the first and last names correctly. However, if the user later removes the values from the "First Name" and "Last Name" fields, the display name still displays the previously entered first and last names. The display name only updates correctly if the user also changes the "Display name publicly as" field. This behavior can be confusing and inconsistent.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Go to the profile editing page.
  2. Enter values in the "First Name" and "Last Name" fields.
  3. Select a display name option that includes the first and last names.
  4. Save the changes.
  5. Remove the values from the "First Name" and "Last Name" fields.
  6. Observe that the display name still shows the previously entered first and last names.
  7. Change the "Display name publicly as" field to any other option and then back to the desired option.
  8. Save the changes.
  9. Observe that the display name now updates correctly.

Expected Behavior:
The display name should automatically update to reflect the cleared "First Name" and "Last Name" fields without requiring additional changes to the "Display name publicly as" field.

Actual Behavior:
The display name does not update and still shows the previous first and last names unless the "Display name publicly as" field is manually changed.
