There seem to be no names shown on Map for Post Offices. Is this intentional?

On which map? There are many OSM-based maps and services. For example on osm.fr's humanitarian map you can see names of post offices. Example post offices: hum1 vs. mapnik1, hum2 vs. mapnik2.

So, if you were speaking of osm.org's standard map (often called "mapnik"), then it seems that names for post offices are not shown, yes. I am not sure if intentional or not (only the developers might know) – but you could suggest (see 1 or 2) to try (if space permits) to place a name label for post offices on mapnik, too.

What’s the origin or make of the map you’re looking at ? And no it aint international. If you know names of post offices please ad them to the OSM database so that other people can find them.
