As already has been pointed out nobody is even remotely proposing to limit adding actual real names, quite the contrary.
It just needs to be understood that most places and objects don't actually have names in more than one language or transliterations that are special (aka not machine generated). As already pointed out take the name of the place which I happen to live in, WD has 26 name entries of which 24 are rubbish and 1 doubtful, the most likely generated from the WP page urls (and a number of those pages are bot generated). A classic example of GIGO. Simon Am 30.06.2018 um 10:32 schrieb Andrew Hain: > One of OSM’s strengths is, or should be, that we are a truly worldwide > map. Multilingual names are part of this.
