A name in  Walloon (Walon; also Wallon (French), and Waals (Dutch)), a regional language spoken in the  Wallonia region of Belgium. This tag is useful when an entity has names specified in more than one language:

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

See the general documentation of multilingual names in Belgium for examples and usage guidelines regarding places in Belgium that might have a Walloon name.
