All that matters is the display name. If that is correct, I would not worry about it.

Collision or duplicate entries... Things like that and Exchange will append a number to that object to prevent duplicates
It can also happen if using AADConnect with UPNs and Proxies

If you didnt add a samAccountName when you created the group, this can also occur:

If that was the case here, you can always recreate it

Hi @Efffdd-3114 ,

I think you could go ADUC and check this group, group name, e-mail address.
Or doing it in EMS:

 Get-DistributionGroup DP1 | FL *Name*

Like Andy said, i think you don't have to worry about it as you could modify these parameters manually or recreate the group.

 Get-DistributionGroup DP1 | Foreach {Set-DistributionGroup $_.Name -SamAccountName $_.Name -DisplayName $_.Name}

Regards
Lou
