According to Wikipedia, Bangalore was officially renamed to Bengaluru on Nov 1, 2014:
The Union government have approved (along with other 12 cities) this request in October 2014 and Bangalore was renamed to "Bengaluru" on November 1, 2014.

The toponym already has the Bengaluru names, but I couldn't make them preferred, it gives the "you are not allowed to update this alt name" error.

I tried creating a new one and deleting the old one, but I couldn't delete either, "The record you want to edit is locked for updates for userlevel1"

Please delete the "Bengalur - delete this" alternate name, as I couldn't even delete the name I just created.
