I don't think we should worry about getting a standard for this. I think
our main task is to extend the data and clean it up as far as we can. Then
we can use the name anomalies to try and get the relevant community (i.e
the schools themselves) to add the correct name - which will be the one
THEY prefer from all the official variants

Regards

Brian
