Other features such as Studium, and file areas, etc. are not affected by this other than that the display name is changed.
In some cases there may be complications regarding the given first name, of a person with multiple names. Contact the Swedish Tax Agency or other authorities, as in this case with Uppsala University, it is the first name that is registered at the Tax Agency which is applicable.
