When Folder is created, Name property is blank

This is a strange behavior I noticed recently and hence thought of sharing through a post. In a Document Library, create a folder. Now for the newly created folder, click on ellipses (three dots) and click "View Properties". Surprisingly, Name property is blank! However, you can still navigate to the folder and upload files to this folder.

This seems to be a bug. Now go to "Edit Properties", you can see the value in textbox. Click Save. Again go to "View Properties" and now the Name property is showing the value.

I found this behavior when I was trying to create a folder using REST API. Totally surprised with this behavior, finally I posted a question in StackExchange. To my relief, I was not the only one facing this behavior! Hope MS will fix this basic issue soon!
