I have discovered a small populated place that is missing from GeoNames.org, and the system will not allow me to add it.

It's a city named Baker-Brook in New Brunswick, Canada. It is very close to another populated place (P.PPL) named Concession-de-Baker-Brook, and some kind of automated rule insists I'm entering a duplicate location when I try to add Baker-Brook.

Here are some URLs related to these two locations:

Concession-de-Baker-Brook:

(Wikipedia does not have a page for Concession-de-Baker-Brook)

Baker-Brook:

(GeoNames.org does not have a page for Baker-Brook)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baker-Brook,_New_Brunswick

https://archives.gnb.ca/Exhibits/communities/Details.aspx?culture=en-CA&community=136


Also, both of these locations are within a region called "Baker Brook Parish", which I believe should be an ADMIN3 (A.ADM3) because it is a sub-division of Madawaska County.

P.S. GeoNames.org does have an entry for the stream (H.STM) called Baker Brook. Baker Brook Parish, Concession-de-Baker-Brook, and Baker-Brook are all close to this stream.
