Renaming an existing sharepoint site

So a few weeks ago I had a request to create a sharepoint site for our training department. I was able to create the site and they began using it without issue. I received a call today and apparently I misspelled the site name. The site name should be learning and development instead I entered "learning and developement" small mistake but they do not want the spelling mistake on the page.

I am trying to change the name so that it appears correctly in the site bar (image1) I have already made the change the only place that I thought I needed to (image2) but cant seem to get the site name to change. Hopefully someone on here can help me.

so you are changing it under look and feel > Title, Description? and you published everything right?

I just tried it on my sharepoint here and the title on the tab changed along with it.

it should change for the tab title too, try to restart the www service on sharepoint, it may be cached also.

Yes I changed it under look and feel and restarted the www service. I also cleared my temporary internet files and attempted to reload the page. No good.

I also tried reaching the site from another computer with the same result, the spelling is still off.

when you go into manage site content and structure, is it spelled right?

also check the main site settings > Modify Navigation

Where is manage site content and structure? The only place i see where I can change the name is under site settings | title description and icon. Under this section it is spelled correctly.

Under the main site I do not see an option for modify navigation where is this?
