Some PDFs not opening with correct file name

I have Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. I often receive PDFs by email. Only the ones forwarded to me from a specific co-worker open with the wrong file name - when they open, the name that displays is the title of the document, not the name of the file. Does that make sense? When I rename it and save to my own computer, the displayed file name does not change to the name I gave it. Other PDFs I receive by email don't behave this way, they open showing whatever the sender named it. What's going on?

Thanks, that fixed it. It doesn't explain why only some PDFs opened that way, but that's less important. I appreciate the quick response.

In the initial view of PDF files you can specify to display the file name or the title.
