Hi,

The main name and hence the name that downloads in the data file for Wrexham is Wrecsam which is the Welsh name, this is making things a little tricky as most people would search using Wrexham. Would it be possible to change the main name to Wrexham and have the associated name as Wrecsam instead so it matches what is on the OS map and what most people, welsh and others would expect it to be please. I understand this maybe a bit contentious but if we can stick to the OS or most commonly used as the main name it would make things a little easier.

If it's ok to change please let me know.

Thanks

Si
