Not sure exactly what you mean. A small example might help. But see also my

'Did you mean' is not a feature of Swish-e afaik.

You likely want:

MetaNames swishtitle
MetaNamesAlias swishtitle title

> PropertyNames source url title breadcrumb summary

You likely want:

 PropertyNameAlias swishtitle title

instead of title as a separate PropertyName
