No. The name is the "common default name". It's all about what means
"local people". Is it only the locals 1km around the place, or the
locals 10 km arround the place or the locals living in the same
country and that decided to find a common definition of the name ? And
what is the wiki definition of "name" ? "the common default name". So
let the danish community decide what they want into the tag name.
