Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Most villages in Romania don't have street names at all, and typically people use "Main Street" in where it is absolutely required to put a street name. However, the official address, as is written in the national ID, contains no street name, just a house number. Many villages have houses spread out on a network of streets, not just along a single main street, so using "Main Street" in OSM doesn't seem like a good idea. Is this supported in any of the OpenStreetMap search applications (like Nominatim) or having a street name is a must? I would like to be able to search for "<house_number>, <village_name>, <country>".

Hi CrazyBanana, read this https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/16703/addresses-without-streetnames And these lines as well http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Addresses An address is useable even if it does not include a street name, but some kind of specific code, like RR 12OSM456 (Road route 12OSM456).

It looks like my search skills are abysmal, I didn't find the question you reference. Using addr:place as recommended there solved the issue for me.
