Description is being ignored when creating a sitecollection
When specifying in the XML to have a sitecollection created, the name specified in the XML will be assigned to both the sitecollections name AND description properties. The description specified in the XML is actually ignored and never used:
$site = New-SPSite -Url $siteURL -OwnerAlias $ownerAlias -SecondaryOwnerAlias $env:USERDOMAIN\$env:USERNAME -ContentDatabase $database
-Description $siteCollectionName -Name $siteCollectionName -Language $LCID @templateSwitch @hostHeaderWebAppSwitch -ErrorAction Stop
