This sounds like the destination names on road signs, especially on motorways.  (interstate 5 north - Los Angeles), the "control city" in US highway lingo. 

Perhaps the existing tags (or similar) for adding destinations to the motorway exits would be appropriate in this situation as well, so there is no reinventing the wheel for a similar tagging situation.  

I forget what that tagging is, but I have seen it before.
