Synonymy for Sites, Geographical Names

Synonymy for Sites, Geographical Names

I am curious how other institutions deal with Countries, States, Provinces, and other entities changing names over time. Do you record past names within Site records? Do you create multiple Site records and relate them somehow? How do you deal with this if you record Geographic Names in a text field for archival materials? I am interested in screenshots of what you have done that has worked, or even ideas that you haven't necessarily implemented.
