I know after the battle the name was changed from Belleau Wood to “The Woods of the Marine Brigade.”

That would not be integrated in French official topography. But rather curiously there seems to have been a change in name anyway. A correct and usual French placename for such a wood would be “Le bois de Belleau” but since this battle the name “Bois Belleau” often seems to be preferred.
