What happens, when you rename a communication site?
As it's not bound to a Office 365 Group, I just rename it in the classic way under Site Settings > Title. The new title gets accepted in the settings UI and changes in the frontend until I reload the page several times. After reload I'm back to the old title. I'm seeing same issues when editing the navigation settings over the inline edit control. Changes are here for a little while and dissapear then. Changes made to navigation over site settings are more likely to be persisted.
Thx for your inputs!

just tried in a Chrome private session and it's the same. Can you rename one?

Do we maybe have any PowerShell options? This thread doesn't make me optimistic and especially @Vesa Juvonen s answer..

Is your site in english or another language?
Had the same issue. When I changed the site title in a french user/browser, it reverted back to what it was before. Changed to an english user/browser and voilà, it kept the change.
The base language of communication sites is english so it make sense.

Had the same issue and was able to resolve using PowerShell PnP version 2.19.1710.0 (October, 2017 release).
I used Set-PnPTenantSite cmdlet
I've been refreshing the page for a few minutes now and it seems to be holding.

That works in the original language, but if you turn an alternate language back on, then change your language to that language and change the site title in that language using Site Information from a modern page or Site Settings -> Title, description, and logo from a classic page (_layouts/15/prjsetng.aspx) then the translated site title in that language lasts only until you visit the home page again (in any language) If you don't go to that home page the translated site title stays.
Same thing for modern team sites.
