They are different things. The operator is the name of the company that
runs the bank. The name is the name of the building or branch name.

The renderers have the option to use the operator logos to render the
banks. I don't think they should render the names, except for on the
very highest zoom levels, or if it's a particularly large building.

It's more obvious / important for other kinds of amenities than for
banks, but we should be consistent.

If your stuck, add both tags with the same value. But don't leave
operator out.
