name= "The common default name. (Note: For disputed areas, please use
the name as displayed on e.g. street signs for the name tag. Put all
alternatives into either localized name tags (e.g. name:tr/name:el) or
the variants (e.g. loc_name/old_name/alt_name). Thank you.) "
alt_name= "another name or names by which the feature is known e.g.
name=Field Fare Road and alt_name=Fieldfare Road, or name=University
Centre and alt_name=Grad Pad"
alt_name_1=**"Additional alternative names. e.g. alt_name_2,
alt_name_3,... Optionally combined with a language code as above"
And so on...
If the present name= is occupied .. then move the present value .. may
be it is name:en=* ?
If the name is not on a street sign .. then I'd use what ever the
majority of the locals use.
