Hello Sam,

This usually happens if something had happened to the boot partition of the OS, and Startup Repair fixed it giving you the (recovered) name tag at the end.

You could use the tutorial below to rename the OS to remove that displayed there and in the Windows Boot Manager screen.

Dual Boot - Change OS Name in Windows Boot Manager

Hope this helps,
Shawn
