France Admin2 codes are inconsistent. For instance we have :
- Yvelines
- Département de l'Yonne

Should be :
- Yvelines
- Yonne

Or :
- Département des Yvelines
- Département de l'Yonne

(imho, first choice is better : Yvelines / Yonne)

Also, I think it has already be pointed out, but in Admin1 code, "Centre" should be "Centre-Val de Loire"

I have updated the main name for French ADM2 to the short name from the alternatenames table (English).

In general it is recommended to use the alternatenames in the desired language and flag.

What is the issue with Center? Has it somewhere not yet been updated, respectively has the isHistory flag not not been set?

Best Regards
