Standardize on not including “River” in the `name` tag for rivers?

Many rivers in Ireland include the term “River” in the name tag. (e.g. name=River Shannon). Some don’t (e.g. name=Avonmore). Some include it as a suffix (e.g. name=Owenbeg River).

I personally don’t like having “RIver” in the name tag, it feels like including a description in the name. Since people refer to rivers without the word “River”, I don’t think it’s part of the name. “This bridge goes across the Liffey” is a normal sentence and shows that “river” is not part of the name.

I’d like to remove “River” from name/name:en tags of rivers in Ireland. What do yous think?
