Yes, I'm using the default stylesheet.

I'm using the follow Mkgmap option:
Where name:engels is the transliterated name.

I had no idea that the name-tag option interacts with the stylesheet. 
Does this mean that I need to have an adapted stylesheet because of the 
name-tag-list? Any other options?

Correct, it seems to me that maintaining a stylesheet takes quite some 
time, time which is a scarce commodity. Creating my own stylesheet is 
just very low on my priority list.

That said, if anyone knows of a good public *generic* stylesheet that is 
maintained or actively developed and is better then the default 
stylesheet then I will consider to switch.

I know there are some specialist stylesheets around (e.g. for MTB of 
cycling) but I'm not aware of a generic stylesheet other then the Mkgmap
