[Talk-in] Use of official names for cities

Hi all,
It seems there are following inconsistencies:

Official name, Name on the map
Shimoga, Shivamoga
Dharwad, Dharwada
Hubli, Hubballi

I think this is downright confusing for people who aren't aware of these
alternate names. Shall we not try to stick to the official names (as per
Govt. records) for these and plenty of other cities like these?
Regards,
Ishan
