A common name in  Dutch (Nederlands), a language spoken in a number of countries, but most significantly the Netherlands and the  Flanders region of Belgium.

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

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

See the general documentation of multilingual names in Belgium and the Netherlands for examples and usage guidelines with regards to the naming of places in those countries.
