Why does google call my new View a ZTE Sirius?

So I got my new View a few days ago, and today I got to google maps to get directions, and then I choose to have it sent to my phone. The new screen pops up asking me which device to send the directions, and it lists 3 phones: my wife's LG, my old ZMax Pro, and a ZTE Sirius.

My phone isn't called the Sirius, it's called the Blade Max View.

I googled "ZTE Sirius" and came up with nothing specific. Anyone else seeing this?

    You should be able to change the name of the device in the setting, Settings-->System-->About Phone-->My phone name.

    I wonder maybe what you are seeing in the codename of the device or that someone has changed the name.

    That's the internal name. You can see that if you look at the name of certain package APKs including the firmware updates that start with zte-sirius-msm8937-z610dl
