Cordova keeps changing app name to 'Hello Cordova'

I have a cordova app for android that works fine, it compiles without any issues and I can also create an APK without any problems. However, whenever the app is installed on a device it's name show's up as 'Hello Cordova'

I've changed the <name> property in config.xml in the app's root directory to reflect the correct name but this does not seem to have any effect as everytime the app compiles config.xml in /platforms/android/res/xml/ overwrites the <name> property with Hello Cordova.

I've also tried to edit /platforms/android/res/values/strings.xml to reflect the correct name but that does not work either

`<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
        <string name="app_name">Hello Cordova</string>

How can I fix this so that I can set the name of the app so that when it is installed on a device it displays correctly?


changing the <name> parameter in /platforms/android/cordova/defaults.xml to the correct value has fixed the problem

<widget xmlns     = ""
        id        = "io.cordova.helloCordova"
        version   = "2.0.0">
    <name>My App</name>
