All of a sudden, my name as recipient or sender appears as "Home" [real last name] instead of my name as on the account settings. My name appears correctly in the emails. What causes this and how do I fix it?

Tools->Account Settings->Account Name (at the top of the right hand pane.) What do you have there? Change that to whatever you want to see as your From/Sender or Recipient name, depending on which folder you're viewing.

Problem solved. My phone set up a separate address for some unknown reason.
