After merging two constituents with different names, the household name is not updated based on the standard name format

When merging records with different names, if the target constituent has a different name than the source and the source record is a member of a household, the household name is not updated to reflect the new name applied to the constituent record after merging.
 
We're currently evaluating this issue for a fix in a future release.   

Steps to Duplicate

1. Go to Constituents > Add a household
2. Leave the first option as the standard household name
3. Select the second tab and enter a primary constituent and a spouse
4. Go to Constituents > Add a Constituent and add a record with a different name than your primary household member
5. Access the household record and you'll see the "dynamic" name based on the name format chosen for household options
6. Go to Constituents > Duplicates > Merge two constituents
7. Choose the Primary household member as your source record
8. Choose the Other constituent created in step 4 as the target
9. Run the merge
10. Return to your household record an you'll see that the name did not update
11. Select Edit household and you'll see that the caption on this edit form is correct...
