Yea but it wouldn’t be a bug. If you click on the order you can see the name. It has to do with something being a guest checkout and paypal express. Let me take a look at the code.

Has anyone found a solution for this?  I am on 1.6.2 and I am experiencing the same issues.  Only occurs on Guest checkouts.

Is the customer’s name even saved within the customer record?  It sounds like it may not even be being saved, since it’s a guest checkout?

No solution but I am having the same problem in 1.7.0.2.

This used to be: guest and not empty. It’s not a big issue but still annoying anyone know’s what it is?

Also having problems with this - when paying via Paypal Express, the order created in Magento has no “Customer Name” set, and even if the customer changes their email address after coming back from Paypal, the email address will always be the one used for payment at Paypal.

This is absurd. Any fixes?

I hope our post will help you solved the problem
“Some time after upgraded to latest version from version 1.4, 1.5.x to 1.6.x or 1.7.x you will see something like this:
