If you change the rule
place=city ...
place=city & name=* ...

You should get only citys with a name.
Yuo need to adjust that of course for the other place=* rules, too.

But this sounds like a bug in the OSM data.
Could you give me some examples, where you have duplicate POIs?
Then I can check if this is an OSM data bug or how to better solve this.
