Hello Ebrahim,

an other example is the difference between France and England :
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/920269202 : name = "English Channel
/ La Manche" (Manche means sleeve in French :-))
or https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/9289721#map=8/50.653/1.395 :
name="Strait of Dover / Pas de Calais" which is named after a city of
England for English people or named after a city of France for French

So for the Gulf :  name = الخليج العربي / خلیج فارس ?
