Customize site label in multisite

Hi guys, I'm building a site with a blog and a corporate site. To avoid multiple logins, I have created a multisite network like this: (Main site) (Blog)

For SEO we want the site title to be the same, e.g. "Acme Inc". But in the Dashboard, under the My Sites dropdown, there is now 2 "Acme Inc" items. How can I keep the site title the same, but assign a label for each site so that the My Sites dropdown will show "Main site" and "Blog"?

I hope you have a good solution for me, thanks!

    Hi @blogjunkie,

    I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

    To achieve this could you please try using the attached small plugin that contains the following code?

    function vvd_remove_my_sites( $wp_admin_bar ) {
    add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'vvd_remove_my_sites', 999 );
    function vvd_my_sites($admin_bar) {
    	if (current_user_can('manage_network'))
    	$admin_bar->add_menu( array(
    		'id'    => 'vvd-my-sites',
    		'title' => 'My Sites',
    		'href'  => admin_url('my-sites.php'),
    		'meta'  => array(
    			'title' => __('My Sites'),
    	$sites = wp_get_sites();
    	foreach ($sites as $site) {
    		$site_title = ( $site['blog_id'] == 1 ) ? "Main site" : "Blog";
    		$admin_bar->add_menu( array(
    			'id'    => 'vvd-network-sites-'.$site['blog_id'],
    			'parent' => 'vvd-my-sites',
    			'title' => $site_title,
    			'href'  => get_site_url($site['blog_id']),
    add_action('admin_bar_menu', 'vvd_my_sites', 20);

    Best Regards,

    Found an alternative solution. This code will replace the site title with the domain name:

     * Change My Sites Menu Names to as the menu name
    function change_site_names() {
    	global $wp_admin_bar;
    		$blavatar = '<div class="blavatar"></div>';
    	foreach ( (array) $wp_admin_bar->user->blogs as $blog ) {
    			$menu_id  = 'blog-' . $blog->userblog_id;
    			$blogname = $blog->domain;
    		$wp_admin_bar->add_menu( array(
    			'parent' 	=> 'my-sites-list',
    			'id' 	=> $menu_id,
    			'title' 	=> $blavatar . $blogname,
    			'href' 	=> get_admin_url( $blog->userblog_id ) )
    add_action( 'wp_before_admin_bar_render', 'change_site_names' );
