maps.me took approach similar to Nominatim's: each map region has "default
language" in metadata, and in case the name:<default_language_here> is
needed but is missing, just name tag is taken.

Similar approach was used when making a map for Wargaming's World of Tanks,
looking at the country's iso code. A list used there is available on github,

(Translations that OSM lacks were performed by professional translators and
also published under ODbL,
and for non-critical map labels we've trained anything-to-latin and
anything-to-cyrillic neural networks, results
