Cannot rename Personal Location

Hello, I recently created a new personal location for a nearby golf course. It showed up on the mobile eBird as well as the website. Later, I realized that I wanted to rename it. I used the locations page on the desktop to rename it, but when I went back to mobile, the old name was still on the location list.
Help, please!

Amit,
A location name ought to be changeable if you have not shared the location or used a Hotspot. Recently we have had several of our locations lumped into a Hotspot without our notification and certainly not with our consent. Check for an S or P in the "Type" column when you open your "My Locations" page. A name change for a P location is probably an option, but never for an S. However, if you shared from your own P, because that is now also used by others, no name change possible (this seems to be a glitch in the system). But one never knows what will happen as we just changed the name for an S location - hunch that we named it first and others now use the location - or the name?
