Wrong English name

I have noticed that when searching for my business from the English-language versions of Google or Google Maps, a different name shows up. The name of my business is Ecocar AS in all languages, but on English sites it shows up as ECOC AS. I can not find any option to change the English version of the business name, only the Norwegian, which is already correct.

 

Google Maps URL: https://www.google.no/maps/place/ECOC+AS/@60.3163181,5.2684331,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x7ea9b0fa9c7...

Address: Ytrebygdsvegen 37, 5251 Søreidgrend

Thanks @Ecocar A

 

Its kind of replicable for me (slightly different desctiption of the issue adding):

 

The issue happes when ever not using th Norwegian Userinterface as per this URL:

https://www.google.de/search?q=Ecocar+AS+Ytrebygdsvegen+37%2C+5251+S%C3%B8reidgrend&rlz=1CAACAG_enDE...

 

Any other language interface as 

English https://www.google.de/search?q=Ecocar+AS+Ytrebygdsvegen+37%2C+5251+S%C3%B8reidgrend&rlz=1CAACAG_enDE...

or German

https://www.google.de/search?q=Ecocar+AS+Ytrebygdsvegen+37%2C+5251+S%C3%B8reidgrend&rlz=1CAACAG_enDE...

 

shows the wrong name

 

I have escalated it to Google
