A common name in  Frisian (Frysk; also West Frisian (English), and Fries (Dutch)), a regional language spoken in the Dutch province of Frisia (Fryslân).

This tag is useful when an entity has names specified in more than one language:

  • If name=* is in Frisian too then name:fy=* specifies that this is (also) Frisian.
  • If name=* is in a different language then name:fy=* specifies an alternate name in Frisian.

See the general documentation of multilingual names in the Netherlands for examples and usage guidelines.
