LIGHTROOM - Rename a person from lowercase to uppercase does not work

In the people view of Lightroom, I had an accident and wrote a person's name in all lowercase letters, e.g. john simpson.
Now I want to rename that name to John Simpson.
Whenever I do that, it changes the name in a second or so, then reverts back to john simpson.

I have tried going the way via a different name, e.g. John Notreally Simpson, then rename back to John Simpson, but Lightroom insists on stilli calling him john simpson.

It does not seem to have any effect if I do this with only a section of my photos or with all photos.

I believe this is a bug and I hope it will be fixed.

Have you tried editing the keyword in the Keyword List panel?

That is what I would suggest as well. Thanks Victoria.
