Some, like the Title column, can never be deleted, but they can be renamed.

Are you trying to delete the column  completely at the site collection level,
and if so, why?

Answer #2    Answered By: Mason Salazar     Answered On: Apr 25

Yes columns  can be edited and\or deleted, but you have to make sure that
they aren't in use in any libraries\site content types or SharePoint
will throw errors.

However, I would avoid either renaming or deleting OOB columns. There are
occasions where SharePoint functionality in other places may be tied to the
existence and hard coded name of an OOB column.
