Can someone please make the sailing date correction in title of category or let me know if I should?

The Angel Gabriel's sailing date has been put in the category name and it is definitely in error, but I don't know if it is proper for me to change the "name" of a category. I've been on the road and couldn't answer Abby Glann's comment on 17 April 2014. The date that is being used as the sailing date is actually the embarkation date, not sailing. 4 June 1635 is the appropriate date for sailing. No one has ever addressed the problem of whether I can or can not change the name of the category to discontinue the propagation of misinformation.

Unfortunately, the only way to change the name of a category is to create a new one, add everyone, and remove them from the old category. With no profiles in the old category, it becomes obsolete and does not show in any category lists.

I've created the new category for Angel Gabriel, sailed June 4, 1635 and moved the profiles over to this category.
