Product Name changes show in backend but not frontend

So I’m encountering a weird problem here.  I imported a bunch of products using DataFlow from an M$ XML file.  I exported the file, made a lot of changes to the spreadsheet, including changing most of the names of the products, saved it as XML, then uploaded it.  In the backend all the changes took effect.  Great!  Except it shows the old names in the frontend.  I have cached turned off and I’ve refreshed the cache.  I’ve gone in and changed the names in the backend with the same result.  I can change the descriptions and everything, that works fine, it just won’t change the name of the product.  What am I missing here?

TIA

I’ve now exported the catalog back out and it exports the old names instead of the one’s I just imported in, even though the new names are displayed in the backend.  What gives?  Is it really necessary to drop a product from the catalog in order to change it’s name?
