Stored lookup Name field - possible to display a different field?

I've put in a lookup field, and changed the search layout so the user gets something a little more friendly than the  Name field (since it's set to auto number), but when the user goes in to edit the record, the Lookup field displays the auto number (Account Originator below) - is there any way to change this value to another field on the Originator record?  Hoping I've missed a setting somewhere - thanks for any help.

Not if you want the user to be able to select the related record. The Name field is always the field displayed in the Lookup() field.
