As per the scenario, I think product names are stored in store specific.

Edit any of the product for which you want to change the name in the admin panel. change the store view and check against name filed is there any value set against it.

$p = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->loadByAttribute('sku',$sku);
$p->setName("Name of product");
