Our (being myself and another mod on TL) best guess, unless someone explains themselves, is just that someone was trying to set up a feed in a chat and thought to change the display name of the feed, not realizing that it was a network-wide user and that that would change the display name everywhere.
I have changed it back. To any moderator reading this, please don't screw with its name. If you want your room's feeds to have a custom name, click the "create user" button after creating the feed to create a new feeds user, so you can set an image and display name for it. Don't change the Feeds user (ID -2) itself because that goes across the network.
