Confusion over Emma Little Pengelly's name

Could someone in the Electoral Commission please kindly explain to me and the rest of the electorate in South Belfast why Emma Pengelly's photo bizarrely still appears on the Assembly website implying she is still an MLA in the Belfast South constituency, when, in fact, she is not?

Further, could the commission please confirm which name she is actually using to run as a DUP candidate in the General Election? Is it Emma Little or is it now the double-barrelled version, Emma Little Pengelly?

Could the reason for the latest double-barrelled version be in order to appear higher up on the ballot paper? If so, surely her original name, Emma Little, would have sufficed?
