It's a little annoying to see a business that can use both their name and also have a dba with their franchise name listed as the business name on the maps. Doing the "Suggest an Edit" rejects the edit saying "Your edit couldn't be verified, so it won't be published."

So the title on the maps page looks like "Business Name, Inc. dba Franchise Name" - of course, they also get keywords in both the business and franchise name.

This normally isn't permitted, it's one or the other, not both right? I've submitted the Suggest an Edit a couple of times over the past 2 months, but it continues to be rejected.

Before I go down the Business Redressal Form route, has anyone else seen businesses using both a name and a dba?
