The original idea was to (by default) assume that the street name is the
"name" tag of the nearest highway (i.e. no addr:* required), and that
you can optionally set addr:street on the node to make it 100% clear.
But meanwhile - mostly because it is so easy to do in JOSM - many people
simply tag the whole shebang (addr:country, addr:town, addr:post_code,
addr:street, addr:house_number) onto every house node. It adds
redundancy but that is not necessarily bad - gives the OSM inspector a
chance to find fishy corners, and makes everything really simple for
anybody dealing with the data.

The JOSM presets already supply addr:housename even though (to my
surprise) the wiki page doesn't list it.
Agreed that the Wiki page needs a makeover, ideally by someone who
writes better English than the assorted band of Germans who did the
initial version ;-)
