This feature has been labeled as deprecated. The recommended replacement is: name=*.
The place_name=* tag was proposed for setting a name on a place=* when it is drawn as an area. It's definition is worded as such : Only for areas. For nodes use 'name' instead. It may do no harm to use both, though.
The usage of this tag remained controversial and a voting about removing the recommendation was successful.
