Change CRM Organization Display Name

Customer asked me to see if they can change their CRM Organization Display Name. I didn’t pay attention to these small details in CRM therefore I don’t know. But I did some research and evaluated the impact of changing the name. So it’s possible to change the organization display name and the impact is minor since we are not changing the schema name of the organization.
