Site title missmatches with the site name on SharePoint admin center if changed from site settings

Copper Contributor
While working on SharePoint, I observed that the behavior of English and non-English sites differs when renaming the site from the site setting.


  • Non-English Sites: Once you edit the title from site settings, it stops synchronization between site names on the SharePoint admin center and the site title.
  • English Sites: No issue observed.

Steps to repro:

  • Create a non-English communication site.
  • Rename from Admin center => new site name would reflect on site.
  • Rename from Site => This would not affect the Admin center's site title.
  • Here onwards synchronization between titles is broken.

Is this a known issue? I did not find anything related to this.

Sounds like a bug, so I would recommend you creating a Case with MS via your Admin center
