Field Type keeps reverting back

I have a case where a database field "First Name" keeps getting identified as "Entity Name". I want another field as "Entity Name" (which is set), but when I change "First Name" to eg "No semantic type", it appears to stick for a little while, but I believe when I do a schema sync or overnight, it reverts back to "Entity Name".

Not running latest version yet.

Hi @amosm
Set "First Name" to something different that "No semantic type", then it should no be reset on sync.
