Understanding Computers/Full name


I noticed that sometimes when I email someone or they mail me my first and last names show up in the email with my email address. This isn't always true so I assume it has nothing to do with my email account both because it  isn't with every mail I get and also I don't think I ever gave my email account my name. how does a  person's actual name start showing up  in emails?

Hello James:
Thanks for asking this question.
I think this is what happens.  When you send an email to someone, that someone can organize your email with proper first/last name for the easy search and references.  Then, that person can pick up your email address and sends email, then you will see your name on the incoming email.
I hope this helps.
