display name itself doesn't violate TOS, i guess you'r not the only one named as you are in the world.

usernames are unique, as also the double names of older accounts, but that are in fact also user names.

Display names are not unique.

BUT when it's used to harrass... grief, or other things that aren't really nice, you always can report the issue to LL.

When reporting griefing or harassment time and date are most important to the Lindens. The servers keep logs for only a few days (3? 4?). So, reporting quickly is important.

If you have chat logs, include them. They are weak evidence as they can be easily faked. But, the time and date of the chat and user names provide a guide for finding the information in the server logs.

Images and screen captures are helpful.

Let your friends know of the problem. They can help collect evidence. However, their input doesn't carry as much weight as one is likely to expect. We have groups of vigilantes and griefers that mount group attackes on their targets. But, the information is looked at.

All Abuse Reports are processed. Not all are acted on. We seldom hear what happened or what action was taken. The Lindens move slowly. Users often disagree with their decisions but, none of us have all the evidence the Lab can see.
