Site name is not showing in Google search results (only domain)

In Google result, my site is showing as this:

Site-adress.com
https://www.site-adress.com/
Correct descriptions from configuration.php: public $MetaDesc

Every other page in search results has correct name. But not mine.
When I open my page, I see correct name in browser tab, which is - My Beautiful Name

In my configuration.php, there is public $sitename = 'My Beautiful Name';
In Joomla administration, I see Global Configuration/Site Settings/Site name - "My Beautiful Name"
In Joomla administration, in Menu/Main Menu/Home (default)/Page Display, i have "My Beautiful Name"

Those tree setting are there from beginning (one month).

So, where exactly Joomla has a correct setting for page name in Google search results?

Global Configuration / Site Tab / Site Name in page titles -> set it on Before

Once you set it, update your sitemap(s) and submit them to Google Search Console, so the results get updated after the next 48 hours. If you have no access to it you have to wait around 2 to 4 weeks while robots pass and update.

It takes time that Google crawl and index new changes to your domain. Also keep in mind that submitting your website in Google console gives you more control over the way Google interacts with your website.

Change meta data. Then use Google Search Console and index the page manually.

To be able to index the sites manually was good. But sadly Google has deleted this feature and now you will have to wait up to a week for Google to index them.
