There is no UX rendering problem as UX anyway has to deal with similar pattern via CTAP spec and It is RP's decision what user/RP information is wants to store on the FIDO device.

If RP supports multiple accounts, it will set the "name" for distinguishing purpose.
If RP's does not mind/care storing "name" on the FIDO device (even for single account), it will set the "name". 
If RP's does not want to store any user identifiable information on the device, he can choose not to set any information.
