I'm not sure why your display name only showed the first character. Perhaps that was a glitch in your browser. The system did seem to show your entire display name at the time you reset it. Did your display name show okay in-world?

Although you can reset your display name to your username at any time, you can only select new display names once every seven days. Try again next week.

If you have more to add to your question, do so by editing it (via "Options" over there on the right).

When you reset your Display Name, it goes to the default, which is your login name -- Lumivarjo.  You may change your Display Name once a week, either by setting a new name or by resetting it (as you did) to the default.  So, yes, you may get that "Profanity Prayers" name back again, but you'll have to wait a week.  Be sure not to include disalowed characters -- usually in funny fonts that drive DJs and merchants crazy.

You used a fancy font - ℙ ℙ

A lot of those non standard characters make the back end very upset.

Usually what happens is if you use certain fancy characters and set your display name on Firestorm, using legacy profiles, the display name will initially take but will then cut off after the first character that isn't allowed either after a few minutes or after a relog.

If you set the display name via the web profile (LL viewer or directly on your web profile in an external browser) the display name will change to some gibberish in Korean.
