Take a look at the account information.  At the top right of your designer window should be your account photo. If you click on that it should display a dropdown under it with: Your Full Name, Your Email Address and a Sign Out option.

The User() function derives its information from there.

Is this issue only in this particular app?

If you create a blank app and add a label and set the Text property to User().FullName, does it show anything?

Looks like it might of just been the account that was associated with the powerapps I was using. Seemed to not have a name associate it the account.

No worries...these things happen.  Always good to throw it out here in the community for a quick (hopefully) resolve rather than pulling teeth out on it. 😉
