While Hsinbyushin was not the Great, why Bayinnanng was?

I found something weird about Burma Kings tagged by The Great. They do have only 3 Kings tagged by the great. Unlike Thailand, we have 7 Kings tagged with the Great. For Burma case, there are 2 standards to name “the Great” in Burma. One is who found the empire, and the other is one who could expand the vast territory.

Anawrahta Minsaw: First King of Burma tagged by the Great
He was the one who founded Pagan Empire.

Bayinnaung: Second King of Burma tagged by the Great
He expanded the territory to current Laos and Thailand.

Alaungpaya: Third King of Burma tagged by the Great
He was the one who founded Konbaung Dynasty.

You can see that the 1st and the 3rd are the founder of the new empire, who make the union of Burma. Tabinshwehti also did this job, but he was not tagged by the Great

Right now, please take a look at the 2nd one. Hsinbyushin also did this job. He expands the territory as vast as Bayinnaung could. Moreover he also prevent the invasion of China. This is not easy. China was a big country with a giant troop. Hsinbyushin must be very excellent at the battle. He also used the same name as Bayinnaung. There is no reason that he did not get tagged with “The Great”.
