Cannot rename the nodes from the app

I change the name of the node in the app but it changes again to the default name “Unknown a5c4”. How can I change the name of the name of the node?

I found that the default name only sticks when I use the command line Meshtastic tool to set it.

I think the app just temporarily gives you a nickname to use, but if you change to another device and back it reverts to whatever the saved default is. I ended up naming my devices “Radio 1”, “Radio 2”, and “Radio 3” because I thought it sounded better than “Unknown abcd”.
