Unfortunately, it is not possible within modern version of Skype.

 

You can install Skype desktop client and change your display name.

In the menubar, Click View >> Profile >> Click your name >> Type the display name >> Enter.

Why are a lot of things not supported yet on the modern version of skype? Skype is long enough to have these issues solved.
