Can you please elaborate a bit on the reason for your question ?
Is it because you want a map with a uniform syntax for multiple names ?
I assume it is not because  humans do not understand the meaning of
one of the following forms Biel / Bienne, Biel/Bienne, Biel - Bienne,
Biel (Bienne)
Or do you want a uniform system for parsing ?

The name field is just a label. If you want to know the exact name in
a certain language you look at the name:xx field.

p.s. It is not the first time this question pops up.  Not so long ago
someone proposed to have a second field that indicates the format in
which the name field is written.
