Why Does AirPods Name Keep Changing?

Wondering Why do my AirPods have a different name? It’s either because the name goes back to the original when the AirPods are placed back into the charging case or after switching between devices.

Your Apple earbuds take their name from the device they are connected to. If they have another person’s name, then they have connected to another phone in the past.
