This is used to include names in Hindi, written with the Devanagari script. This should reflect local pronunciation accurately.

Note that the name normally used in other languages, including Urdu (normally written in the Arabic script) and English, may differ in pronunciation.

Note that this tag is useful when an object has names specified in more than one language:

  • If name=* is in Hindi then it specifies which language is used in the main name tag
  • If name=* is in a different language then it specifies the name in Hindi
