There is a town in Alicante that has an official name and an alternate name.
The proper names are:

Castellano/EspaƱol: San Vicente del Raspeig
Valenciano: Sant Vicent del Raspeig

The title in Geonames is San Vicent del Raspeig. I tried to correct it, but I don't have permission to do so. I've submitted a change that the ES version is the "Preferred" one.

A city is a large and permanent human settlement. Although there is no agreement on how a city is distinguished from a town in general English language meanings, many cities have a particular administrative, legal, or historical status based on local law. Cities generally have complex systems for sanitation, utilities, land usage, housing, and transportation. The concentration of development greatly facilitates interaction between people and businesses, sometimes benefiting both parties in the process, but it also presents challenges to managing urban growth.
