Aha! That would explain why I cant seem to find names in the data.

The area I'm importing is rather small (about half a town of 45,000). I 
have no issues tagging the ways with road names manually.

I just wanted to make sure nobody had any problems with me using the 
data for parts of Aurora, Ontario that I havn't traced yet.
