Business Names shown in app

I went out to a bar last night called Ply. My friend used her Monzo card and it correctly displayed Ply in her app. I used my Curve card and the Curve app displayed Kosmonaut which I believe is the previous company name. We used the same card reader.

Why might this happen? I was under the impression that Mastercard would send the name through to Monzo/Curve. Does Monzo use another database for lookup?

Going to X-Post this to Fintech Talk and Curve community forums.

Monzo have their own database which enriches the MasterCard data
