And 609,505 alt_name and 6,013 alt_name_1.

These approximate figues have already been mentioned in this thread.
Does Anybody have stats on how many "*name*" tags have values with

the name.

Appart from using this as a cunning way to track which TIGER names
have been reviewed, there's IMHO no good reason to convert an existing
"name_1" to "alt_name".
