Probably page-name permalink already exists.. Check it in trash as well....

  • delete it then.. and re-update your permalinks.. WordPress checks slugs if it already exists or not if it exists then automatically appends -2 to your slug and makes your permalink ready.

    Once your slugs are added you need to manually edit the slugs.. Go to the post then just below the title you will find your permalinks and the last part of the permalink is your slug. Click your slug and add your desired name
