I'll agree with Martin - nearby we have a service station "Brian's Auto
Centre" - it is a one-off, independent service station, but it's probably
also the biggest service station in this city of 600000 people!

They would be very upset (& so would I, seeing I mapped them!) if they were
renamed "No Name" (or "Pompe Bianche"?)

If there is any form of name out the front, then that name should be
mapped, regardless of whether or not anybody thinks it's "well known" or
not, because to the locals in that town, it *is* well known.
