Already existing. This one is bilingual Greek and English.

similar to Thailand:

It's easy to use a different fallback, e.g. first try name:de, then 
name:en if German name is not existing and as a last resort the name tag.

The exact order of the names to use depends on the target audience of 
the map. French users might prefer name:fr, name:en, name.
