How to appropriately label names for unsigned or unofficial outdoor trails?

Certain trail names have been in use within outdoor communities for an extended period and were subsequently added to OpenStreetMap using the name tag.

Additionally, some mappers have introduced their own custom names, such as Nat’s line, Peter’s Path, Tech trail, Never again trail, among others.

Since none of these trails are officially signed or documented, and the names are in English rather than the local language (Thai), the current use of the name tag is incorrect. Therefore, a cleanup is needed.

Furthermore, some of these “names” are activity-specific. For example, while Never Again Trail may be challenging on a dirt bike, it may not be as difficult on foot.

What is the recommended method for tagging these names?
