Look at this page: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:name

We have various name tags possible: name=*, official_name=*, alt_name=*,
loc_name=*, old_name=*, etc.

Let's use name=* for the name that most people would recognize and use
official_name=* for the official name used by the government, most
especially if they are not really known by the people.
