There is a "ref" attribute for the route number and a "name" attribute for
the name of the road. For example, in Edinburgh there are ways with a ref of
A90 and a name of "Queensferry Road"

However, I don't know about multiple names - There are streets in Edinburgh
that have two names for some odd reason.
