It depends on whether the change is an actual change of the body name.
That is, does it require (or already have) a new name authority record.
Even if you're not setting up the authority record in a national database,
you still need to go through the process of deciding of the body actually
changed it's name.

So, if it's simply a variant name (i.e. it would be a 410 on an NAR), it's
a minor change. If it's an actual body name change (i.e. it would require
two NARs, one for each name), it's a major change.
