Street names are updated with the tile updates. Tile updates typically happen daily (time is dependent on which server you are on and your local time zone)

https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Map_tiles

Note that the live map updates take longer than the app tile updates.

In addition the tiles can be cached within the app, and the most recent updates may not be shown until the local cache is updated.

Planning a route will force all the tiles along that route to be updated.

Changing the name of a street is a known trigger to update the tiles. The full list of such edits to trigger an update is listed here. From there, it will go live once a tile update is run. See the status page listed above.
