How much "pain" is this causing you?

Please explain the issue you experienced in the most condensed way possible
There are several umlauts missing in some titles of modern-day Germany (playing with English localisation):

The county of Munster in the duchy of Westfalen should be called Münster. The bishopric of the same name therein is spelled correctly.
Likewise, the holding of Neumunster in the county of Dithmarschen in the duchy of Holstein should be spelled Neumünster.
The county of Lubeck should be spelled Lübeck; its holding of the same name is spelled correctly.

Also, tangentially related, the county and holding of Cologne should rather be called Köln. I realise that Cologne is the English spelling, but it oddly seems to be the only German name in the game that uses its English spelling; München & Nürnberg, for example, are called just that instead of the English variants Munich & Nuremberg.

Please explain how to reproduce the issue

Is there anything else you think could help us identify/replicate the issue?
