    Supposedly it gets the name from the "Me" contact in your contracts list. It is located right at the top.

    That being said, my "Me" contact listing says Ben and so does my Google Plus profile, but for some reason touchless control says "Benjamin" and I have never figured out why.

    It might take a while for your phone to recognize the change. I know when I changed my name in Google+ from Benjamin to Ben it took until the next day for my me contact to see it. Sorry I could not be of more help. I'm sure there are more people here on the forums that have seen this issue.
    Also, I think about a month back I saw a thread about this very thing. Maybe try scrolling down and trying to find that?
