Hi @mtmontell.


Normally this would be taken from the Homepage title section in your Shopify admin under Online store > Preferences, as mentioned on our help guide here.


If you do update this section of your store, it's worth keeping in mind that it may take a bit of time until the information is passed on to Google. You can, however, monitor this progress using Google's URL Inspection tool. More information on this can be found on this SEO guide and this SEO documentation from Google.


As you're looking to make changes to your store's search engine optimisation (SEO), I'll also leave some resources on this topic below, in case you'd like to further improve the SEO of your store:

I'm having this same problem here. I changed my website name in preferences > "Homepage Title"


I then also changed it in the theme.liquid file "<title>Website name</title>


In Google it still shows as my name "Tom Rees - Website name"
