That the name is blank is a bug in your (or the default) style: 
the polygons all have a name tag: "place_name".
That's the tag used for a period of time for places in OSM,
and we should use that if no name tag is there.
The best solution is really to use the option I wrote already here
in the thread.

The bigger problem is, that the tags for the place node and the
place polygon from your examples are even conflicting :(

On of the both (polygon or node) needs to be deleted and the
other one should be corrected. But since I don't know the area,
I cannot say which of the two is the correct one and fix it.
