You want to add the old name, or what do you want to do?

@Mik77 The 2nd comment means something like "Stalingrad" & "Volgograd"?

I doubt that you will find a lot of information in OSM about old street names. But OSM has 3 different fields for what you need : name, old_name, name:XX where XX is the language code. As for old_name, there is no guarantee it is the name during the period you want.

I am not very familiar with the database scheme, but all info about a street is stored in 1 row using hstore. In case you need 3 different rows, you will need 3 queries (one for each "name") and make the union of their results to get the table you want.
