I just do what I can in the hopes that it makes it easier for others. I hope it's helping. Please let me know if I'm not or if there is anything else I can do.

As a rule, use the local name (you may have to look around on street view) as the primary when you can and if it is signed, then the highway # (US-xx, MS-xx, CR-xx) as the alternate. Mississippi DOT maps aren't that hot about listing the local names for many roads, for many counties it may have nothing but the county road number on the map.
Also, some highways may be called Hwy xx N(S/E/W) on a two lane stretch of road kind of like this:

It should just be labeled as MS-583, dropping the local/county N/S/E/W geographical designation. In Waze, you should only retain the N/S/E/W direction on 4 lane divided highways. Some of the street signs around me have some state highways marked as such, but it seems to be somewhat haphazard and at least in DeSoto County appears to have been phased out with newer street signs.
