The other thing to remember is that the Town/City name will not show up on the map/editor until the City Layer is updated - which hasn't happened on either server in quite a while now. Waze is looking into that problem.

Also, check local guidelines about what qualifies for mapping...

This is the answer I've been looking for, but I have another problem:
There are two villages with the same name in my country, one of them already exists in the map. When I try to name streets in the "new" village I can't save changes, because the segments are too far from the already named another village. Is there any solution? Thanks.

You can't directly. The city and towns are derived from the city name given to the road segments on the waze map. To add a new town, you need to assign each road segment in the town the name of the town.

Alan, lets be gentle to the novices. Although, I'm sure the answer is there somewhere, I didn't find a direct answer after searching through the wiki for a bit in a attempt to post a link to the answer. Expecting a novice to wade through the wiki and find this answer is about as realistic as expecting the city layer to update.

That's a common problem to every country, I think. We add the local authority or county name in brackets after the village name for all but the largest. So Newport, in South Wales, is the largest, and is called Newport on the Waze map. But Newport in the Isle of Wight is called Newport (Isle Of Wight). There are quite a few other towns and villages called Newport in the UK, but they're all suffixed with the county name.
