Normally, they just have the name of the street, but in the cases where
the name is the name of a person, is common to have other relevant
informations, like you can see in the pictures and in Stefan's example.
They're mostly plaques in a wall, but they can also be detached, when
there's no place to attach them to.

I found this undocumented tag:
https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/information=plaque#overview

It could be an option.
