Based on the code found in the file "legend_template_en.html" (or 
"legend_template_pt.html" or "legend_template_es.html") it is not 
supposed to happen.  Basically the code says if there is no "wms_name" 
metadata use "layer_en"metadata as the layer label.  If "wms_name" 
metadata exists, use "wms_title" as the layer label.  I tested the 
sample application and it works as expected.  Do your file look like this?

[leg_layer_html order=ascending opt_flag=15]
  <tr bgcolor="#ffffff">
    <td><input type="radio" name="my_legend" 
onclick="CWCSelectLayer('[leg_layer_name]', true)"[if name=selected 
value=1] CHECKED[/if] ></td>
    <td align="center" width=20><input type="checkbox" 
    [if name=layer_status oper=eq  value=1]CHECKED[/if]
    [if name=layer_status oper=eq value=2]CHECKED[/if]></td>
    <td><img src="[leg_icon width=20 height=18]" width="20" height="20"</td>
    [if name=wms_name oper=isnull]
    <td><a href="#" 
class="label">[metadata name=LAYER_EN]</span></a></td>
    [if name=wms_name oper=isset]
    <td><a href="#" 
class="label">[metadata name=WMS_TITLE]</span></a></td>
