An alternative name in Polish language. Note that it is only rarely useful:

  • If object is in Poland and official names in other languages are not specified, then simply alt_name=* is sufficient
  • If there is only one name in a common use, then name=* or name:pl=* is enough.

This tag can be used when a street, river or any other feature has another common name but there is some other alternative form. Like with alt_name=* it is preferred to use more specific tags like

if that is possible, as this tags provide more info about nature of the name.
