try to override the theme header file in your theme:

{YOUR VENDOR} / {YOUR THEME} / Magento_Theme / templates / html / header.phtml

  1. copy the content from the original file:

    / vendor / magento / module-theme / view / frontend / templates / html / header.phtml

  2. add this at the very top of the header.phtml file:

        ], function (customerData) {
            'use strict';

Customer name is not displayed after login in magento 2

This issue because of cache (I think your cache is disabled), enable cache it should work.

problem: When I turn off the cache system (all types of them), which cause heavy loading each time i refresh a page. In return, it affects the javascript / knockoutjs to work properly I think. The part for customer name in Magento_Customer/templates/account/customer.phtml is <span data-bind="text: customer().fullname"></span>
