Google Maps Showing Bulgarian In English Maps Listings

Earlier this month we complained that Google Maps was showing Asian characters in an English map listing. The issue with that listing was it was edited to be displayed that way - so it didn't appear to be Google's fault and thus I had no right to complain.

But now, Gabs pointed me to a different issue where a verified listing has Bulgarian characters for the city name as opposed to the English equivalent.

The listing is over here and the page is all in English except for the city name, which is St Albans or Сейнт Олбанс. St Albans is a city in southern Hertfordshire, England.

So why is it showing up in this language when it is owner verified?
