We have updated the geonames database with the alternate names in Breton (br) of about 1500 towns in Brittany, France. Breton (Brezhoneg) is an insular Celtic language spoken by some of the inhabitants of Brittany (Breizh) and Loire-Atlantique (historically part of Brittany). Breton is related to Cornish and Welsh spoken in neighboring Great Britain.
We are glad to include minority languages in the geonames project and have previously added minority language data sets from the geonative project Macedo Romania.
