Hi Miguel,

A question.  Many places in Wales are predominantly Welsh- or 
predominantly English-speaking.  For somewhere like 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/3378387351 , if "name" was a compound 
of both the Welsh and English names rather than the more frequently / 
locally used version, how would I know what the preferred name actually 
was?

Currently the answer is easy - look at the "name" tag.  If "name" is 
instead a compound, how do you suggest a map consumer - or someone just 
looking at a map - should do that?

Best Regards,

Andy
