  1. Easy - login to Google Mail > open links "Settings > Accounts > Send mail as > edit info" > change field "Name" to one word > Save Changes.

  2. Hard way or if you want empty both names - login to Google Mail > open links "Settings > Accounts > Send mail as > edit info" > change field "Name" || or login to Google Apps Admin > open links "Users > choose user > Rename >" >> and put special char "lrm" from "Char map" U+200E to inputs.
