In the developer section, right-click the Data Types folder and choose Create.
Enter a name for your new data type, e.g. AATest and click the Create button.
Note that the name of the new data type is correctly set to AATest, and also in the Developer tree it is also called AATest.
Change the name to BBTest and click Save. Note the "datatype saved" message.
Right-click on the Data Types folder and choose Reload Nodes to update the tree.
Note that the node is still called AATest in the tree.
Click on the AATest node.
Note that the name is set to BBTest in the dashboard area.
Browse to a document type in the Settings area and add a new property - note that the entry in the list reads AATest and not BBTest.
when you change the name of a document type this new name should be used when showing that datatype across the Umbraco admin (developer data types tree, settings document type tree).

Having the same problem in 4.6.1 also. Appears to be a cache issue, temporarily working around this by recycling the application pool.
