Two examples that can't be resolved by a spatial query:
1) There is a business near me named "Maxwell House". It is entirely
unrelated to the coffee brand of that name, despite both companies
operating in the same country.
2) Until recently, there was a burger joint in town called "Sonic's"
that was entirely unrelated to the chain of drive-in eateries. (When
the national chain opened up a location in town, they paid the existing
restaurant to re-brand.)
