Ok, so my source for the Earth labels (except the airport labels) is this:

http://download.geonames.org/export/dump/

The file I was using is allCountries.zip, from which I extracted everything with a 'P' (city), 'T' (mountain), 'H' (lake/river) and 'V' (forest) feature class.

I suspected this as source already.
Unfortunately there are some features -that I definitely know- are plain wrong,
others have many alternative names with no specific order, so selecting the "best two" on those would be kind of random...

As I already have the current Earth.tree as SQLite database, I tried some "clever" selection-algorithm on those massive alternatives:
  1. Take the name with "most non-ANSI characters" as the first choice (longest local name; possibly having more information than a "shorter" one)
  2. If (1) results in several equal elements, select the first in alphabetical order as first choice (arbitrary,... I know)
  3. Take the name with the "most ANSI characters" as the second choice (longest "international" name; possibly having more information than a "shorter" one)
  4. If (3) results in several equal elements, select the first in alphabetical order as second choice (arbitrary,... I know)
As this is just a dumb algorithm, the quality of rejection/acceptance of names is kind of questionable though

The example from my post however has so many so different names, that the algorithm will most likely select the wrong two
