Trouble of zoom and participant name

Last night I was in a panel along with Juan Andrés Guerrero-Saade organized by Aveek Sen, the topic was "Tips on how journalists can avoid getting snooped". You can watch the recording at Youtube.

But this post is not about that. It is about Zoom. Just before logging into the call, I made sure that the name is changed while joining the call, generally my daughter uses the Zoom and her name was mentioned before. I personally have almost zero zoom usage (except 2-3 times in last 1 year). But, after logging into the call, zoom again went back to the older name, and did not allow me to change it during the session. I kept trying during the session without any luck. I don't know why did they do this or why I could not find a way to change my name, but I feel this is really stupid.
