Geographical names in Israel

Perhaps we should set up a rule about names of peaks streams etc.
Should it be הר סדום or סדום?
Should it be נחל הבשור or הבשור.
It’s obvious from the map that those are peaks or streams, but long names make it clearer.
The official Israeli maps state הר הצופים and נ. רפאים.

Good topic!

At first I thought we should use short names (no “Har” or “Nahal”)
but now I believe maybe we should have these.

In any case abbreviations like “N.” as in “N. Refaim” is a no no!


+1 to both ideas.
