Minor correction : "langu" is "my/mine" and not "I"

Shouldn't 'emilian' in the Swahili sentence be capitalised?

What's the difference in jina ni langu emilian / jina langu ni emilian


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tu.8zPhLD72zzoZN

The possessive "langu" comes right after the noun "jina" (Swahili word order is [Name your is Emilian.]) Why would you want to order it [name is your Emilian.]? The verb "ni" should not split the possessive from the noun that it is modifying, unless you know something that I don't about Swahili?
