Guys, time to standardize our bank POI names.

My proposal:
Actual Name == POI Name

Affin Bank == Affin Bank <place name>
Alliance Bank == Alliance Bank <place name>
AmBank == Ambank <place name>
Bank Islam == Bank Islam <place name>
Bank Muamalat == Bank Muamalat <place name>
Bank Rakyat == Bank Rakyat <place name>
Bank Pertanian Malaysia == Bank Pertanian <place name>
Bank Simpanan Nasional == BSN <place name>
CIMB Bank == CIMB <place name>
Citibank == Citibank <place name>
Deutsche Bank == Deutsche Bank <place name>
EON Bank == EON Bank <place name>
Hong Leong Bank == Hong Leong Bank <place name>
Hong Kong & Shanghai Bank == HSBC <place name>
Maybank == Maybank <place name>
OCBC Bank == OCBC <place name>
Public Bank == Public Bank <place name>
RHB Bank == RHB <place name>
Standard Chartered Bank == StanChart <place name>
United Overseas Bank == UOB <place name>
Al Rajhi Bank == Al Rajhi Bank <place name>

Basically, we use the name most often associated with the bank. I need feedback from ALL of you if possible :D

Good Idea! this give us search more details rather just only display bank names but don't where is the place should be.

Cheers!

Actually, the standardization of the bank name is the important part. 8-)

When searching for Maybank ATMs I see our MFM 1.15 have ...
(1) Mbb <placename>
(2) Mbb@Petronas <placename>
(3) Maybank <placename>
(4) Maybank ATM@Shell <placename>

I don't have objection to the <bankname>s proposed by Ant, but I suggest we include the variation for ATM within petrol stations ...
(a) <bankname> <placename>
(b) <bankname>@<petrolstation> <placename>

May I suggest using Chartered Bank instead of StanChart?

Because in chinese word for Standard Chartered Bank is 渣打銀行, which is "Chartered Bank" only. :mrgreen:

Is SCB a common abbreviation for Standard Chartered bank in SG? If yes, then let's use SCB :)
